I’ve become quite a fan of the PSoC 5LP. If you can’t do something in code, you can do it in logic; if that fails you can do it with analog components. Once you get good, you can use all three at the same time. Mastering DataPaths takes a little work, but they are so powerful, it’s worth the effort.
I like the fact SparkFun is supporting this technology. They will however have a hard time keeping up with Cypress. http://www.cypress.com/?rID=108038

I found a really nice PSoC 5LP board I’d like to see SparkFun carry in their inventory or produce themselves:
After doing my initial development with a Cypress CY8CKIT-050 and getting good a datapaths, the SchmartBoard is one fantastic addition to your embedded systems arsenal and it’s the same price as the Gainer board with a much more powerful chip.
If you’ve ever worked with a device that can run code pretty fast as well as have plenty of custom logic, you’ll never go back to anything else.

I would actually like to see a combined version of this BoB and the 10256 BoB. Two channel would be a good start but four channel would be very handy. Uses would be for running 12 volt automotive lamps/devices from a noisy 12 volt power source. With opto isolation I would think the microcontroller would handle PWM or basic digital control flawlessly. Just be sure not to tie any grounds together or better yet, have a user configurable ground strap.
No public wish lists :(
