      All received. You are great!
      Now learning :)

      @Pavel Konoplyanik: Red Pitaya applications can be installed from the Bazaar within a single click. Open source code can be downloaded from the Backyard. Both can be accessed through the Red Pitaya home page:

      Received it last week, very professionally packed :) Also easy to set up, having some experience in embedded devices.
      Basic functionality is okay, can't wait to see further development (e.g. signal analysis, statistics, etc.) Do you have a roadmap for this? Also very curious how the community will pick this up.

    8. Rolf-Dieter Klein on March 16, 2014

      received it safe in Germany - will shortly try it out - great !

      btw i also didn't see any info about sending, but yesterday page of my sending was filled completely. And the strange thing that the first activity in Saint-Petersburg was "Unsuccessful attempt of delivery"/"Temporary absence of the addressee" in two days after customs clearance in Moscow.
      Maybe this info will help someone.

      lovely! Can't use it right now to see how cool it is in work. Hope next week I'll have some time for it.

      @Darren Johnson
      We are sorry to hear that your receiving of the parcel was unsatisfactory. In this first batch there were only a few cases when we were contacted to further assist the delivery due to some special situation – and we managed to successfully complete all of them.
      It is our pleasure to support all our backers, and would like to resolve your case just as well. To do that, we will continue by answering your direct email shortly.

      I have to say that I'd like to file a complaint.

      The method of shipping this product has been wholly unsatisfactory. On February 27th I recieved an e-mail that my product was being shipped to me through a company called TNT consignment. On March 3rd, the product was listed as "Out for Delivery". Everyday I checked, and it still said "Out for Delivery". Yesterday I looked at the tracking information again, and was surprised to see "Reciever refused delivery". After making some phone calls, I discovered that the product was handed over to Fed Ex and that Fed Ex was holding onto it at a dropoff location. At no time was I notified of this, or that my package was waiting to be picked up.

      Now, the item is being returned to the shipper. At this point, I'd rather not deal with it, and would just like a refund instead.

      @Nicholas Granger-Brown, filippo sartori
      Due to natural distribution of the electrical characteristics of the analog Front-End and Back-End electronics, their offsets and gains will differ slightly across various Red Pitaya boards and may change during time. Instructions on how to calibrate the Red Pitaya fast analog inputs and outputs can be found on the Red Pitaya wiki page.

    14. Gordon Mason on March 12, 2014

      Got mine in Nome, Alaska! Looking forward to learning how to use it. And, I want to compliment the Red Pitaya team on not only a great product, but a thoroughly professional campaign! Good work!

    15. Masoud on March 12, 2014

      Mine arrived a few days ago in Switzerland. The product is very well designed and of good quality. I had some initial tests without any issues. Thank you guys for the professional work and good communication.

      The device is very powerful and capable. However without integration to existing open source tools and platforms it is not much of use. This is mainly the job of community.

      Here are my suggestions:

      OpenWRT, archlinuxARM, sigrok.

      I have started porting archlinuxARM to Red Pitaya. But I don't have much experience in u-boot. Anyone interested?

      Mine arrived. It looks ok, when I have time I will start doing things with it.

      Just one thing: In the package it says VAT is 22%, in my country, Spain is 21% so it is not very different, but if it goes to places like USA it probably could be much cheaper, as in some states it is less than 10%.

      Mine arrived in Australia yesterday.
      Just ran some initial tests with scope and sig gen, and I'm very impressed so far!
      Beautiful PCB layout and workmanship, and quite nice initial software suite.
      I think I'll soon be designing a CNC cut acrylic case, and installing a small cooling fan...

      I got mine yesterday, really appreciate the outstanding support from red pitaya. TNT Taiwan is really bad forwarder service. Hope I get some time to play with it soon. Really great work RP team.

      Got mine today, after a delay in customs.

    22. Nicholas Granger-Brown on March 10, 2014

      Successfully and very professionally executed. Well done to the Red Pitaya team!

      I'm hoping for some amplification on the developer instructions either from the team or the community. As a non expert in Linux the concise instructions given look a bit scary - perhaps a pre configured ready to go VM that can run under windows might help?

      As mentioned elsewhere I see an offset on the input channels. 5mV on one and 10mV on the other. I haven't spotted a way of trimming this out on the oscilloscope UI. Of course if I can get the dev environment running I might take this on as my first self education project.

      Once again well done.

      My Red Pitaya arrived today. Thanks for the great support with the shipment!

    24. Jiansong Bai on March 8, 2014

      Wow, I'm fighting with the customs.

    25. filippo sartori on March 8, 2014

      The calibration is well within 1% of my scope measurement.
      The signal generator appears to have 50mV offset.
      Anybody else seeing this?

      Received my Red Pitaya today. I must admit, out of every project I've backed, in terms of communication, product quality and even details such as packaging this has been - hands down - the most professional project ever. Great work!

      Arrived HK last night and got it around at 09:30 at this morning.
      Many thanks

    29. filippo sartori on March 6, 2014

      First tests done
      It does get hot indeed.
      I need now to perform some tests with a signal generator.
      It appears to have some offset, maybe in the signal generator.

      So far so good. Next stop, The Backyard.

    31. Danny Dom on March 6, 2014

      Have tested it a bit, It works, great, finally a good kickstarter project.
      The only thing I can't find is a simple way to take a screenshot of the oscilloscope.

    43. Red Pitaya Creator on March 5, 2014

      If you still haven't received your tracking code, please first make sure that you have checked the same e-mail that you used for backing the project (there is also a possibility that your tracking code ended in spam).
      In case that you don't receive the tracking code within the next 2 days we are asking you to send us an individual message with your data so that we can check and provide your tracking code directly.

      Just got my tracking code... The tension is mounting.

    46. filippo sartori on March 5, 2014

      Yes,what about the tracking code?
      I have not received any.
      It is that, where I live the couriers have sometimes difficulty to find the address...
      So I am worried.

    48. Branton Davis on March 4, 2014

      I just wanted to let those who are expecting their Red Pitaya tracking information, I didn't get any tracking information, but got my Red Pitaya last night! It's literally breathtaking. You will be very happy when you receive yours!

      No tracking information for either, so far.
