Power Dock for Onion Omega2 & Omega2+

World's Smallest Linux Server & WiFi built-in

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 simple, even for people who are just getting started with building hardware.
  • The Omega2 is affordable

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

The Omega2 is easily expandable. We have designed a whole lot of expansions so you can add capabilities to it through simple plug-n-play.

The Power Dock allows you to use any 3.7V LiPo battery to power your Omega and then charge the battery when it’s out of juice. It has the same form factor as the Expansion Dock and can also be used in the same way: no battery and receiving power through the Micro USB port. The Dock breaks out the Omega’s GPIO pins so you can use them to control external circuits or connect Expansion boards to extend the functionality of your Omega.

Functionality

The Dock exposes several of the Omega’s features to the user:

  • The Omega’s GPIOs are exposed on the Expansion Header. Use the header to plug in Onion Expansions or connect to external circuits
  • Connect USB devices directly to your Omega
  • Control the RGB LED on the Dock using the Omega’s GPIOs
  • Press the Reset Button to reboot your Omega, hold it for 10 seconds to perform a factory restore
  • Turn your Omega on and off with the Power Switch

      Omega2 is tiny so that it can easily fit into your DIY project or commercial 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 has integrated Wi-Fi and on-board flash storage. This means that it springs to life the moment you power it on. You don't have to worry about buying Wi-Fi dongles or installing operating system images onto external SD cards.

      Using the Omega2 is just like using a desktop computer. We've built simple and intuitive apps for you to interact with the Omega2. We also have an App Store where you can discover even more apps! For the more adventurous, you can even build apps with our SDK and publish them on the Onion App Store to share with the world :)

      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.

      The Omega2 is seamlessly integrated with the Onion Cloud. This allows you to remote control it from anywhere in the world with our intuitive Web UI or RESTful APIs. You can also view the status of your Omega2 in real-time, and deploy software updates to it when it is in the field.

      Using the Omega2 with the Onion Cloud is optional.
