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.
Onion Expansion Dock
The Expansion Dock provides an easy way to power the Omega with any Micro USB cable and breaks out the Omega’s GPIO pins. You can use them to control external circuits or connect Expansion boards to extend the functionality of your Omega. It also comes with an on-board USB-to-serial chip that allows you to access the terminal directly from your computer.
The Expansion Dock is the perfect companion for the Omega, making it incredibly convenient and easy to use as well as exposing a variety of the Omega’s features. We strongly recommend getting a Dock for your Omega to get the best experience and most performance, functionality, and stability from your device.
You can provide power to the Omega and Dock with any Micro USB cable. The Dock includes a regulator circuit that ensures the Omega always receives the stable 3.3V it needs to operate optimally.
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

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.
The Relay Expansion enables your Omega to control two other, independent electrical circuits. The circuits are isolated from the Omega and can operate at much higher or lower voltages than the Omega. So you can control other circuits you’ve built or small household appliances rated up to 60W. This Expansion is perfect for home automation projects since it gives you the ability to control other devices remotely using your Omega.
