Omega2+ Maker Kit

Take your IoT development into overdrive with the Omega2+ Maker Kit. Build the same circuits as in the Starter Kit and conduct eight additional experiments using the included Onion Expansion Boards. Experiments include controlling servos, using an H-bridge to control a DC motor, writing text and images to the OLED display, and controlling other high-powered circuits with the Relay Expansion. Step-by-step instructions for building each circuit and running through each experiment can be found in the online Maker Kit Guide under the “Documents” tab.

This kit includes everything from the Starter Kit as well as the Relay, Servo and OLED Expansion Boards. The collection of electronics components in the Omega2+ Maker Kit includes servos, resistors, LEDs, jumper wires, switches, a 7-segment display, a buzzer and an LCD screen, to name a few. All kit components are nicely packed up in a handy plastic carrying case.

The Onion Omega parts we carry are separated into three different categories: Mainboard, Dock and Expansion Board. With the parts in this kit you will be able to plug the Omega2+ Board into the Expansion Dock and add any of the included Expansion Boards to your project!

Core Skill: DIY

Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.

1 DIY

Skill Level: Noob - Basic assembly is required. You may need to provide your own basic tools like a screwdriver, hammer or scissors. Power tools or custom parts are not required. Instructions will be included and easy to follow. Sewing may be required, but only with included patterns.
See all skill levels


Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

2 Programming

Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

2 Electrical Prototyping

Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
