Build embedded systems with Erlang & Elixir

GRiSP 2: Diving Deeper into Embedded Systems

Create amazing Internet of Things designs without soldering or dropping down to C. The GRiSP project makes building internet-connected hardware devices easier with Erlang!

  • Real bare-metal Erlang virtual machine
  • Hard real-time event handling, using open source code
  • Digilent Pmod™ compatible connectors for sensors and actuators

New! GRiSP 2 is a Go! The KickStarter campaign was fully funded — including the stretch goals. If you contributed, thank you, and keep an eye out for updates. GRiSP 2 boards can be pre-ordered now.

GRiSP 2 features the following improvements:

  • Improved Wi-Fi and added Ethernet
  • Increased CPU speed and faster boot time
  • Nerves support with secure hardware-based key storage
  • Modular design for moving fast from prototype to production

Project status & Recent Activity

The original project

GRiSP-Base: Available now

The GRiSP-Base board was first announced in September 2016 at the Erlang User Conference in Stockholm. The first boards shipped in November 2017.

Right out of the box, GRiSP-Base boots into Erlang VM running on real bare metal. It features on-board wireless networking 802.11b/g/n WLAN and connectors for standard PMod sensor and actuator modules.

We have a few boards left in the shop if you don't want to wait for GRiSP 2.
