The Omega2 IoT computer is Onion’s Linux-based, WiFi development board designed to enable makers of all skill levels to build connected hardware applications. Plug in your Omega and it will boot the operating system right away, allowing you to develop in your favorite programming language, create web applications, and interface with a variety of hardware with minimal time and effort spent getting started.
The Omega2+ IoT computer is Onion’s Linux-based, WiFi development board designed to enable makers of all skill levels to build connected hardware applications. Plug in your Omega and it will boot the operating system right away, allowing you to develop in your favorite programming language, create web applications, and interface with a variety of hardware with minimal time and effort spent getting started.
Compared to the Omega2, it has double the memory and storage, and also includes a MicroSD card slot.
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 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.
The Ethernet Expansion adds an Ethernet port to your Omega with a maximum connection speed of 100Mbps. While the Omega is all about wireless connectivity, a reliable wired network connection can be a great addition to a project, and the Ethernet Expansion is a great tool for quickly reflashing your Omega’s firmware.
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 GPS Expansion for the Onion Omega is a USB-based expansion that allows your Omega to pinpoint its location using both GPS as well as China’s Beidou satellite positioning systems. It comes with an on-board GPS antenna as well as a built-in u.FL connector to attach your own antenna. Provides up to 1.8m accuracy, 66 search channels, 22 tracking channels, and -165 dBM sensitivity. Up to 10Hz update rate.
The datasheet for the GPS unit can be found here.
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.
Dive into IoT development with the Arduino flavored Omega2 Starter Kit! With the included Arduino Dock 2, you can supercharge your projects by combining the familiar Arduino platform with the power & connectivity of the Omega2.
This kit includes everything you need to build 11 circuits that will teach you how to control LEDs, read digital and analog inputs, read data from a variety of different sensors, and control external components and displays.
Step by step instructions for building each circuit with the included parts will be found in the online Arduino Dock Starter Kit Guide.
Take your IoT development into overdrive with the Omega2 Maker Kit. It includes everything from the Starter Kit and the Relay, Servo, and OLED Expansions, our three most popular expansions!
Build the same circuits as in the Starter Kit AND conduct 8 additional experiments using the Onion Expansions, including how to control servos, use an H-bridge to control a DC motor, write text and images to the OLED display, and control other high-powered circuits with the Relay Expansion.
Step by step instructions for building each circuit and running through each experiment can be found in the online Maker Kit Guide.
