Campaign Is Live!

We’re excited to present the Omega2 LTE, the next step in our community’s evolving vision for an IoT computer. It builds on everything we’ve done with the Omega2 family and adds 4G LTE connectivity and GNSS global positioning. Just like how the original Omega allowed developers to use high-level programming languages to create WiFi-based IoT devices, the Omega2 LTE now does the same thing for cellular applications.

Product Choices


Omega2 LTE

An Omega2 LTE IoT computer to build your own cellular IoT projects with Linux. You'll need an antenna for LTE and GNSS connectivity.


Pro Antenna Kit

Get the best reception for your IoT project with the Pro Antenna Kit. Features two suction-mount LTE antennas, a magnetic mount GNSS antenna, and three SMA to U.FL adapters for easy connection to the Omega2 LTE.


OLED Expansion

From the Onion Omega2 Pro project.

The OLED Expansion adds a low-power 0.96″ monochrome display to your Omega. With a resolution of 128×64, you can use it to display text, images, and even animations. Very useful for displaying status information, web data, and small logos.


Ethernet Expansion

From the Onion Omega2 Pro project.

An Ethernet Expansion board for your Omega2 LTE

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.


NFC/RFID Expansion

From the Onion Omega2 Pro project.

A NFC/RFID Expansion board for your Omega2 LTE

Bring contact-less RFID and NFC communication to your Omega2. It supports reading and writing with several NFC and RFID protocols at 13.56 MHz. Comes bundled with two programmable Mifare Ultralight tags.


ADC Expansion

From the Onion Omega2 Pro project.

Omega2 can now read all types of analog voltages and sensors with the help of this ADC Expansion. Read and interpret up to 4 analog voltage or sensor inputs, each with 16 bits of precision.


Proto Expansion

From the Onion Omega2 Pro project.

A Proto Expansion board for your Omega2 LTE

The Proto Expansion for the Onion Omega allows you to create your very own expansion that interfaces with your Omega. It provides a small soldering area and 30-pin header that plugs into the Expansion Dock. With it you will have full control over what kind of project you design for your Omega.


Servo Expansion

From the Onion Omega2 Pro project.

A Servo Expansion board for your Omega2 LTE

The Servo Expansion adds 16 PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) outputs to your Omega. Connect standard servos directly to the Expansion since each channel has its own 3-pin connectors, making it that much easier to get started with your project! This Expansion is great in any application that requires servos, like a robotics project or anything with moving parts. Given that PWM is so useful, you can also use this Expansion to precisely control LEDs or drive a DC motor using an H-bridge. The Servo Expansion is often also called the PWM Expansion.
