1.1. What do I need before I start?ΒΆ

The following essential items needed to start are already included in each RedPitaya kits available from our WEB store:

  • 5 V / 2 A micro USB power supply,

  • 4GB (up to 32GB) Class 10 micro SD card with pre-loaded Red Pitaya OS,

  • Ethernet cable.

Additional Required Items not supplied with the RedPitaya kits:

  • computer with internet browser (Chrome browser recommended),

  • router with DHCP server enabled and access to the internet.


Red Pitaya boards should not be powered from a power supply that provides less power than specified or has very thin power wires, since this will reflect abnormal behavior of the device, causing reboots and network disconnections. Same problem might appear if the Red Pitaya board is powered directly from USB on a PC or HUB that cannot provide enough power or when using a bad powering cable.
