FT2232 is FTDI's latest chip ... doc and sample design on
their web site.

	Pretty cool. what about FTDI company? they seem to be
	recommended quite a bit.
	Do you have schematics for the board, and drivers?
	FTDI advertises a development board with an Altera
	device with 10K equiv gates. Probably need something a
	little bit bigger.
	Some day I will actually start making the calculations
	how many gates are needed.
