This adapter was designed to connect the Onion Omega WiFi module to any of our Particle Electron IoT devices.
This adapter includes a Level-Shifted I2C Communication Bus and a USB interface for programming the Onion Omega.
This adapter maps the I2C and Power connections only.
We have designed 3 types of adapters for Onion Omega to better suit the subtle size differences between controllers.* The vast majority of devices are compatible with the Type A adapter. Type B and C are for special-use cases. While Type C is also compatible with most devices, Type B will have fitment issues with many controllers, though it may be useful in certain circumstances.
Type A: Brings the Onion Omega to the front of the PCB with a bias to the right side, allowing taller components to peacefully coexist on the left side of the adapter.
Type B: Brings the Onion Omega to the front of the PCB with a bias to the center and slightly to the right, allowing taller components to peacefully coexist on each side of the adapter.
Type C: Keeps the Onion Omega 0.200" from the front of the adapter, and is horizontally near center with a slight bias to the right.
*Please contact us if you are unsure of the adapter to use for a particular device. WE WILL CONTACT YOU IF YOU HAVE CHOSEN AN ADAPTER THAT DOES NOT FIT A CONTROLLER ON THE SAME ORDER.
Companion - Purchasing Limits Apply
These products are sold at a low price in an effort to help our customers gain connectivity to our product line. Companion products are intended to be paired and used with other products we manufacture, as they perform no useful function on their own. Any orders that contain only companion products will be canceled to prevent short supply. Most notably, products found on our web site for $5.95 or lower are typically defined as companion products (though there are a few exceptions).
As a general guideline, we allow one companion product to be purchased for every device with a silicon chip that has an I²C start address, with a maximum of 3 companion products of a single part number. For instance, you can purchase a Raspberry Pi I²C adapter and a Temperature sensor without any problems. You can purchase 3 I²C adapters and 3 temperature sensors without any problems. You can purchase 3 I²C adapters and 20 temperature sensors, but no more than 3 I²C adapters of the same part number.
- We will allow up to ONE companion product without any silicon based controllers per order.
- We have placed a maximum quantity limit of 3 pieces per companion part number.
Please help us balance the production costs of our low-cost devices and support our company by purchasing devices to go with our companion products, this is the only way we can stay in business.
This adapter allows you to use your platform with any of our IoT Motherboards (Particle Electron compatible) devices.
