Thanks to you all for your kind suggestions
but you talked about lots of interfacing types (serial, I2C, SPI, MIDI)..
I only need USB interfacing (low speed in my case) and
If it's a ready to use product it's a PLUS for me.
I'll have a look at FTDI chips but again I'll have to design
the board.. not what I want.

hm, that's a really tasty board - alas only a 10-bit ADC, so not feasible
for my ribbon to connect.
but I like the design.
