O, I also forgot, To add USB to the controller might not be worth it. You would have to source an FTDI serial converter chip, and there not all the same. Some work better then others, and drivers are usually necessary. Also, Im don't think I have ever seen one that wasn't surface mount. I dont mind soldering that, but it is tough to solder 40 pins around a square 1/2".
