The Omega2+ IoT computer is Onion’s top-end 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.

At the core of the Omega2+ is the MT7688 SoC, which features a 580MHz MIPS CPU, supports 2.4GHz IEEE 802.11 b/g/n WiFi as well as 10M/100M wired Ethernet network connectivity, and operates at 3.3V. The Omega2+ comes with 128MB of DDR2 DRAM memory and 32MB of onboard flash storage — double that of the Omega2! The storage space is expandable using the microSD card slot on the underside of the Omega2+.

The Omega was built to interact with other hardware, so it has a wide variety of hardware interfaces. It has dedicated pins for USB 2.0 and Ethernet as well as 12 GPIO pins that can be controlled by the user. These GPIOs can support the I2C, UART and SPI serial communication protocols.

This board falls into the Mainboard category, which means it is highly encouraged that you pick up a Dock since the Onion Omega utilizes a 2mm header instead of a standard 0.1".

  1. Review by Randall verified purchaser

    Cute little Linux beast with lots of potential. (Posted on 1/10/2018)

  2. Review by Geoffrey verified purchaser

    Great fun to program this (Posted on 27/06/2018)

  3. Review by David W verified purchaser

    I am very happy with this. I am also happy with Core Electronics for keeping stock and reasonable pricing plus quick shipment. I have used it to replace a remote telemetry system which used a 2G modem and no longer works in Australia. The Omega solution was a lot cheaper and more versatile. (Posted on 19/04/2018)

  4. Review by Com verified purchaser

    Onion Omega 2+ comparable to a Raspberry Pi Zero W, and offer more IOT support But Limited GPIO Pins . Easy to use with familiar with Linux. (Posted on 19/03/2018)

  5. Review by Andrew verified purchaser

    A fantastic device. It sits somewhere between a picaxe and a raspberry pi. I am using them for home automation - fan controllers and irrigation monitors.

    I also plan to use them as a teaching aid in the local Primary school (Posted on 6/02/2018)

  6. Review by Chris verified purchaser

    My favorite new development platform. So easy to use and get started. A little bit simplistic in some areas. But, it would be great for educational purposes. (Posted on 29/12/2017)

  7. Review by Josh verified purchaser

    Nice and powerful, works like a real linux server. The well-polished web interface makes a nice easy setup. (Posted on 14/12/2017)

  8. Review by Scott verified purchaser

    Works well, as expected. WiFi setup can be a little confusing. Console web app doesn't work with Firefox at all - at least on my PC's. Chrome and Edge worked fine though. (Posted on 27/11/2017)

  9. Review by Stuart verified purchaser

    Bought this board without realising its dependence on its breakout boards but still managed to get every thing running on a bread board and I will be buying some of the breakout boards to further enhance its potential. It has a lot to offer and is quite the self contained unit. (Posted on 16/11/2017)

  10. Review by david verified purchaser

    The Onion Omega is like a Raspberry PI (I know you hear that alot), except that its smaller and uses lower power.
    When combined with the Arduino Uno dock, it has the power of a YUN but about the 1/10 the price.
    The total size is the same as the Uno, and you can plug Arduino shields in exactly the same way.
