Note: This Expansion requires a Dock with an Expansion Header to use, such as the Expansion Dock, Power Dock, or Arduino Dock R2.
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.
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
- Provide network connectivity to a wired device by bridging a wireless network
- Quickly flash new firmware to the Omega
