After last night's stream, it sounds as if a big focus for next year will be robotics and other motor applications.
So the new up5k and Ecp5 boards will be tile-based, which makes them suitable for such applications. High currents and voltages will be supported and tiles will be screwed down to make them mechanically stable.
I understand you are planning to produce a motor tile that will support up to 6 DC motors, or alternatively 3 stepper motors, or 3 encoder motors, or up to 12 servos.
It will have an on-board IMU with an accelerometer and gyro and a DAC, (mainly to provide reference voltages for the motor drivers).
The motor drivers will be 6 Allegro A4950s, which are each controlled by 2 signal pins.
There will be a GPIO header on the tile for connecting other things such as touch sensors, and a header for an i2c time of flight sensor was discussed.
You also plan a stepper motor tile, which will support up to 4 stepper motors.
Do you plan to provide this as some sort of kit?
Are you planning to provide this as some sort of kit?
Are you planning to recommend a chassis for wheeled or legged robots?
What motors are you thinking of providing or recommending?
Do you have recommendations for suitable batteries?
Are you planning streams that will be specifically of building and programming such robots?
I expect that the programming will be a mixture of micropython and nmigen.
You mentioned that one application will be identifying and fetching Lego bricks. This will use a camera and machine learning.
