Use the Arduino Dock 2 to supercharge your projects by combining the familiar Arduino platform with the power & connectivity of the Omega2. It features the ATmega328P microcontroller as a co-processor to act in tandem with the Omega, and exposes the GPIO pins of both the Omega and microcontroller. Use the Serial UART or I2C to have the Omega and microcontroller communicate and take your projects to the next level.
The Power Dock 2 allows you to use any 3.7V LiPo battery to power your Omega and then charge the battery when it’s out of juice. It has the same form factor as the Expansion Dock and can also be used in the same way: no battery and receiving power through the Micro USB port. The Dock breaks out the Omega’s GPIO pins so you can use them to control external circuits or connect Expansion boards to extend the functionality of your Omega. The Power Dock 2 adds an ADC that allows the Omega to measure the voltage level of an attached LiPo battery. This will give you a better idea of how much juice is left in the battery!
The Expansion Dock provides an easy way to power the Omega with any Micro USB cable and breaks out the Omega’s GPIO pins. You can use them to control external circuits or connect Expansion boards to extend the functionality of your Omega. It also comes with an on-board USB-to-serial chip that allows you to access the terminal directly from your computer.
The Mini Dock is designed to power your Omega for applications that do not require GPIO pins. Its small form factor makes it suitable to use for wireless applications such as Wi-Fi range extension, wireless printing, wireless video streaming, and more. The Mini Dock comes with a built-in USB port, allowing you to plug and play a variety of USB devices into your Omega. An on-board USB-to-Serial chip provides easy access the Omega’s terminal directly from your computer.
The Breadboard Dock brings breadboard compatibility to the Omega! Power the Dock and your Omega with any Micro USB cable and plug it directly into a standard breadboard. The Omega’s pins are mapped 1-to-1 onto the breadboard, allowing you to access all of the Omega’s I/Os in your breadboard project.
