Omega2 Wireless SOC

Ever wanted a SOC with 802.11 b/g/n wireless, a bit of memory, and some I/O that isn’t an ESP8266? Then you may be in luck.

Onion, the company behind the Omega SOC has brought together another kickstarter. This time around their System on Chip is further integrated onto a single die and sports 64/128MB of memory saddled up to 16/32MB of storage. Unsurprisingly, they’ve dubbed it the Onion 2.

NESIT will have one of these little wunderkind available to use in our electronics workshop when and if they’re released. Bear in mind that it is kickstarter. But with a previous track record of bringing products to market the odds are good that Onion will have the manufacturing ready to fill their orders.
