The USB is just for fooling around out side of the clock, getting 
familiar with what it can do.

The FPGA can handle the serial port interface just fine.

BTW the original has cheap slow microcontroller (don't even remember 
what it is now) I'm replacing it with a modern Altera MAX-10 FPGA for 
the upgrade.
