Introducing the Omega2, an easy to use IoT computer.

What the heck is an IoT computer? It is a Linux computer designed specifically for building connected hardware applications. It combines the tiny form factor and power-efficiency of the Arduino, with the power and flexibilities of the Raspberry Pi.

  • The Omega2 is easy to use, even for people who are just getting started with building hardware and software.
  • The Omega2 is expandable and plugs into a variety of “dock” boards which support a family expansion to allow you to make cool projects.
  • The Omega2 is affordable, allowing everyone to own one.

 With the Omega2, Onion want to lower the barrier of entry and allow everyone to take the leap into hardware development

The Omega2 is tiny

Omega is Tiny

Onion made the Omega2 tiny so that it can easily fit into your class project or company’s product. It is less than 1/4 the size of the Raspberry Pi, and less than 1/3 the size of the Arduino Uno.

The Omega2 is highly integrated

Omega front and back

Containing a System-on-a-chip Microprocessor, DDR2 DRAM, Flash Memory, Chip Antenna, and additional components, the Omega2 is amazingly integrated. Click here for more information on the Omega2.

The Omega2 comes in 2 versions

Two Versions of The Omega

For those extra demanding projects, Onion have created the Omega2 Plus. It uses the same chipset as the Omega2, but has double the built-in storage and memory, and on top of that, there’s a MicroSD slot built in, so you’ll never have to worry about running out of space.

The Omega2 has great I/O

Omega2 Pinout

There is a wide range of digital inputs and output available on the Omega2 which will allow you to interface to the external world. USB provides you with a wired connection to your computer, power and peripheral devices like Webcams. I2C and SPI allow you to connect to industry standard devices like sensors and actuators. I2S connects to audio devices, Ethernet to wired legacy networks, and General Purpose (GPIO) pins are available for simple or custom designed interfaces.

The Omega2 is modular

Onion Omega Modular Design

The Omega2 module plugs into one of many “dock” boards, which can then be further expanded with a family of additional boards that Onion offers. Shown here is an Omega2 plugged into an Expansion Dock, and then thru the 30 pin header, a 16-channel PWM Servo Motor board, an Ethernet board, and then topped off with the high-resolution OLED Display, proudly showing Onions logo!

The Omega2 is Arduino-compatible

Onion Omega Arduino Dock

The Omega2 can be easily added to your existing Arduino projects. We have designed an Arduino Dock so that you can make use of your existing Arduino shields. Click here for more info on Onions Arduino Dock

The Omega2 is connected

Onion Connectivity

The Omega2 is designed for connectivity. It has Wi-Fi built in, and we have built expansions so that you can easily add Bluetooth, Cellular, and GPS to your projects.

The Omega2 is a full linux computer

Onion Linux

Don’t be fooled by its size, the Omega2 is a full computer running Linux, the same operating system that powers some of the world’s most mission-critical infrastructure. You can think of the Omega2 as a tiny Linux server with Wi-Fi. For a nice tutorial on Linux, click here.

The Omega2 is easy to use

Onion Setup Wizard

The Omega2 is incredibly easy to get started with and use. It comes pre-loaded with a setup wizard which walks you thru the quick process of connecting to your wifi network, updating to the latest firmware, and connecting to the cloud. For more information on getting started, click here.

The Omega2 speaks many languages

Onions Many Languages

An important benefit of running Linux is that the Omega2 can be programmed with whatever language you want. Save time by using languages and libraries you are already familiar with.
