Project Help and Ideas » Baking USB support onto the board

Right now for the system I've got put together, I have an external female USB B slot that the computer plugs into. Internally I have that USB B slot wired to a female USB A slot, and my NerdKits USB-to-TTL adapter plugged into that, which is then plugged into my board. It's a bit of a mess. Ideally, I'd like to connect directly from the USB B slot to the board, and then add the appropriate hardware for doing the conversion the cable is doing on the board. Are there any all-in-one chips to perform this function, or do I have to put together a FT232/CP2102/PL2303 system? Actually, since I'm not a fan of the PL2303, maybe something else in that slot. Have any of you done something like this?
