MikroElektronika (MikroE) has added full support for real time signal analysis to the development tool at the heart of its Planet Debug remote service.
Adding Red Pitaya support to version 2.3.0 of the NECTO Studio IDE enables design engineers to replace bulky and expensive lab instruments with a single compact, open-source platform.
Combining NECTO Studio and Planet Debug with the Red Pitaya tools enables engineers to view and analyze real-time signals on remote boards.
Red Pitaya in Slovenia develops multifunction, open-source software-defined instruments such as oscilloscopes and signal generators, spectrum analyzers, logic analyzers and Bode analyzers without the need for specialist test systems.
“Red Pitaya is a perfect partner for our NECTO Studio IDE and Planet Debug, the industry’s first hardware-as-a-service platform which enables remote development and debugging. Now, users can not only code and debug remotely on real hardware, they can also remotely analyze the signals using Red Pitaya’s extensive toolkit,” said Neb Matic, CEO of MikroE in Belgrade, Serbia.
NECTO Studio 2.3.0 is a complete, cross-platform software development kit for embedded applications providing everything necessary to start developing, and prototyping, including Click board applications and GUIs for embedded devices.
- Remote access development board supports multiple MCUs
- High-performance signal generation in a click board
This enables rapid software development as developers do not need to consider low-level code, freeing them up to focus on the application code itself. Changing the MCU or even the whole platform does not require developers to redevelop their code for the new MCU or platform as they can switch to the desired platform, apply the correct board definition file, and the application code will continue to run after a single compiling.
Engineers can also use NECTO Studio 2.0 to run Planet Debug, industry’s first hardware-as-a-service platform which enables designers to develop and debug embedded systems remotely without investing in hardware. For just $4/day, designers can reserve time on a remote Planet Debug station configured to their requirements, and develop and debug their own applications code remotely through NECTO Studio without having to source the hardware, wait for it to arrive and install and configure each element.
