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. 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 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. The Omega’s OS comes equipped as a web server by default, so that other devices on the local network can interact with the Omega through a browser.
The Omega2+ runs an Onion-customized version of the LEDE (Linux Embedded Development Environment) operating system, a distribution based on OpenWRT. 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 easily expandable through simple plug-n-play Expansion Boards. It is highly encouraged that you pick up a Dock (see below) since the Onion Omega utilizes a 2mm header instead of a standard 0.1".
