At the heart of the board are three MC33926 motor drivers by NXP Semiconductors. While the board is theoretically capable of switching up to 30A total, the power traces in the board and connectors have only been tested up to 10A total across the six output pins.
The Omega facilitates programming the microcontroller wirelessly using the Arduino IDE, while it and the ATmega328P can communicate through a Serial UART connection or using the I
The SparkFun ESP32 Thing Environment Sensor Shield provides sensors and hookups for monitoring environmental conditions. While incorporating three sensors capable of measuring five different environmental variables as well as providing connections for several other sensors, this sensor shield creates the best way to make your
Power can be provided to the Omega and the Expansion Dock with any microUSB cable. The dock includes a regulator circuit that ensures the Omega always receives the stable 3.3V it needs to operate optimally.
The LSM9DS1 is one of only a handful of ICs that can measure three key properties of movement — angular velocity, acceleration and heading — in a single IC. By measuring these three properties, you can gain a great deal of knowledge about an object’s movement and orientation. The LSM9DS1 measures each of these movement properties in three dimensions.
Since the Omega is so flexible when it comes to networking, you can use the Ethernet Expansion to provide network connectivity to the Omega, connect a modem to your Omega and have it act like a router, or provide network connectivity to a wired device by bridging a wireless network.
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 brightness level of all of the pixels on the display can be adjusted and, as a result, the display is very power efficient. Additionally, a single command enables built-in scrolling animations, where the contents of the entire display can be scrolled to the left, right, or diagonally left or right.
The Power 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. The Power Dock 2 adds an ADC that allows the Omega to measure the voltage level of an attached LiPo battery. This will give you a better idea of how much juice is left in the battery!
This board relies on the Charlieplexing technique to control individual LEDs, which means less GPIO pins are used (as opposed to a traditional grid format). Through the use of Charlieplexing we have been able to control all 56 LEDs with a total of only eight pins (labeled ‘A’ through ‘H’).
This is the SparkFun ESP8266 Thing Dev Board — a development board that has been solely designed around the ESP8266, with an integrated FTDI USB-to-Serial chip.
