Got it. I need a voltage regulator. I was hoping you could power it like an arduino, which has an onboard voltage regulator.
@Egon-Windhager No, unfortunately we do not. It's something we can consider for future versions, though.
@Lazar-Demin What pin on the expansion dock is the 5V Vin?
@Craig-Soich You can connect a 5V power supply to either of the 5V and GND pins on the Expansion Dock and it will supply power to the Omega and Dock.
I am looking for Schematics as well... for the main onion board and the dev and dock boards?
Any idea when or if they will be released?
@dan-braun We're making a few changes to it to address some problems we've encountered during manufacturing. We should be able to organize it and make it ready in the next couple of weeks.
@Boken-Lin Posting this purely to keep visibility of this topic.
While fully appreciating that you Omega people have a lot of work on your plate, I am more and more feeling the lack of documentation on the Omega hardware, particularly:
- Electrical specs etc.
I think that having these would be of great benefit to the Omega community to:
a. Facilitate better experimentation with and usage of the Omega
b. Minimise the multiple small questions that get asked in relation to the hardware
@Kit-Bishop Yup, totally agree. We are already preparing them, and they will be uploaded soon!
@Boken-Lin Thanks - sorry to be bothering you about this. Presumably something will be posted to notify when they are available.
@Kit-Bishop No problem at all I wish we had more time and resources so we can get all the documentation and tutorials up for you guys.
