USB to UART Converter for ATmega2560 - PC communication.

Hello, in a project enhancement, I am going to need to use a USB communiation between ATMega2560 (standalone with arduino code) and PC, and I am going to need a converter to take the RX/TX and send/recieve via USB to/from PC application.

I found MCP2200 and FT232 chips, they look like the will do the job, but I have never done this, anyone has any advice about a better one or easier way? I would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

FT232, use any of the existing modules such as


Connect Rx, Tx, Gnd to Serial1, Serial2, or Serial3.
