One of Red Pitaya’s main objectives has always been to provide an indispensable tool for academic communities.

With professors in mind on the one hand and students in the other, we always strive to provide the best classroom experience possible!

As of October 2016, Red Pitaya’s name has found its place on the Xilinx University Program Board Partners list! It is a great honor and a privilege for everyone with the Red Pitaya team and a great recognition of our hard work and dedication.

Xilinx University Program (XUP)
Who hasn’t heard of Xilinx yet? Besides pioneering the FPGA, Xilinx is the leading provider of All Programmable FPGAs, SoCs, MPSoCs, and 3D ICs. Their university program is aimed at academic customers, i.e. professors, to access teaching material, as well as students to obtain the best technical resources.

Xilinx University Program Board Partners
Along with XUP supported boards, Xilinx is partnering up with other board providers, which brings a huge array of choices for development kits to the table. Red Pitaya just recently became a proud member of this renowned company.
