The original project


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.
