STEMlab 125-14 variants
- Posted by Red Pitaya Team
Red Pitaya launched the original STEMlab 125-14 in 2013, which was aimed at making electronics accessible to everyone and remains the company’s best-selling product. Over the years Red Pitaya has continued to innovate based on the feedback of its clients, and has developed several variants of the original model to meet as many customer needs as possible.
In this blog post, we will take a closer look at each of these variants.
The STEMlab 125-14 Z7020 Low Noise is designed for applications that require high-speed processing and complex algorithms. This product comes with a powerful Xilinx Zynq 7020 FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array), which enables users to implement three times more custom hardware accelerators and digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms. The STEMlab 125-14 Z7020 Low Noise is ideal for applications such as digital communications, image processing, and machine vision.
The STEMlab 125-14 Low Noise is designed for high-precision measurements that require a low noise floor. This product comes with a low-noise power supply and precision voltage references, which make it ideal for applications such as audio measurements and low-level signal analysis. The STEMlab 125-14 Low Noise is also equipped with a 14-bit ADC (Analog-to-Digital Converter) and DAC (Digital-to-Analog Converter) for high-resolution measurements.
The STEMlab 125-14 External Clock is designed for applications that require precise timing and synchronization. This product comes ready for external clock input to create a high-precision clock generator, which enables users to synchronize multiple devices with sub-nanosecond accuracy. The STEMlab 125-14 External Clock is ideal for applications such as radar, lidar, and time-of-flight measurements.
The Red Pitaya STEMlab 125-14 X-Channel System is designed to meet the needs of applications that require multi-channel RF signal acquisition and generation. It consists of multiple STEMlab 125-14 devices and features clock and trigger synchronization, as well as SCPI server support for C, Python, MATLAB, and LabVIEW. Additionally, the system comes with open-source multi-channel streaming software that includes a command line tool and Qt client app, making it a flexible and customizable solution for a wide range of applications.
The Red Pitaya STEMlab 125-14 4-Input features four inputs at 125 Msps 14-bit, making it ideal for applications such as multi-channel data acquisition, diversity receivers, and nondestructive testing. With an internal/external clock selector available and performance improvements such as less noise and crosstalk, it is a reliable tool for various industries, including automotive equipment, medical imaging, and communications. The device also comes with a Xilinx Zynq 7020 SoC for 3 times more mathematical implementations compared to our traditional 7010 FPGA, for all the demanding real-time signal processing needs.
The STEMlab 125-14 ISO17025 is designed for applications that require ISO 17025 calibration and certification. This product is calibrated and certified by an accredited calibration laboratory, which ensures that it meets the highest standards of accuracy and traceability. The STEMlab 125-14 ISO17025 is ideal for applications such as metrology, quality control, and scientific research.
