Bill,Yes a straight up option. My first look around found a like board:https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GYWWR93?pf_rd_p=183f5289-9dc0-416f-942e-e8f213ef368b&pf_rd_r=YKRMGZ18EK47NXYTTD5C
Terrible, terrible reviews, so a definite non starter.
Nothing else popped up. 
Schematic is posted and is simple enough. Flashing is very easy. Initial load to get a boot into a programming mode we need to see what that entails. But a standard dip, led, etc is a plan in my book.Jack

 All, What we may need to do is work design a board using the through hole parts that will use their code.  It may be better in the long run to reverse engineer their software/develop our own that will get the job done. I have bought several of the complete devices just as Jack did. Bill

 I thought it might be useful to check the situation with the Hobbytronics USB Host Controller v2.4. Please refer to the attached PDF  copied from their website. 
  The key part is the text in red. It's only available as a kit with a minimum order of 10. And it requires 'a hot plate or oven' because some 'SMD components are under the components'. It seems the price has increased as well. 
  A second PDF shows the page about the USBHOST-DIP. Fine for those who design boards. 
  It seems good that some of us took the opportunity to buy assembled and tested units while they were available. 
  Best regards 
  Jon 
  Note: some time ago, there was a notice referring to the key staff member who built the USB units having had health problems. It seems that situation is continuing. We may not be able to count on the same level of responsiveness to requests for firmware support in future.
