I want to add USB to Serial (to program chip) to my custom PCB (ATMega644p) so I don't have use FTDI adapter.  What would be least expensive solution? Preferably thru the hole and as little footprint as possible....
I looked at ATmega8U2 that's used by Uno boards, and was hoping there's something easier to implement out there... :)

CP2102 module with DTR connected to 0.1uF cap to the reset pin.

MIKROE483 from mouser.com is one of the least expensive non-ebay solutions for an FTDI module.
