The 2022 control system has been announced with new support boards being developed by Rev Robotics. It may be too late to influence a change, but I’m interested in what people think about the PDP.
This year, there have been numerous posts trying to find ways to connect more then 16 things to the PDP. We’ve also seen an explosion in brushless motors that can draw more power, and an increase in brownouts because team’s don’t manage their power draw, indicating that perhaps less ports is prudent.
Assuming that the battery doesn’t change, how many ports should the new PDP have?
If you want to debate new battery chemistries, please do so in an existing thread, such as: Paper: The possibility for new battery chemistries in FTC/FRC- Evaluating batteries
