Easily connect modules, sensors, and USB devices to your Omega2+

This project is coming soon. Sign up to receive updates and be notified when this project launches.

The Omega2+ Expansion Dock is a development board that provides all of the interfaces your various modules, sensors, and USB devices might require. Access SPI, I²S, I²C, UART, USB 2.0, and Ethernet without the need for additional breadboards or soldering. Just plug the expansion dock into your Omega2+, and use it like you would a Raspberry Pi or any other single-board computer.

Efficient, Convenient, and Affordable

Here at Factorial Group, we have incorporated the Onion Omega2+ into several of our IoT, industrial automation, and robotics projects. Along the way, we encountered a number of challenges:

  • A lack of full-featured Omega2+ development boards—in order to get the full set of peripherals we need, we've had to use several different off-the-shelf boards and modules at the same time
  • The high cost and inconvenience of designing and manufacturing a custom development board
  • Even with a custom board, connecting a large number of modules and sensors often requires the use of additional breadboards and more than a little solder

To address these shortcomings, we decided to design and manufacture a convenient, inexpensive dev board for embedded Linux developers and other users of the Omega2+.
