Low cost USB interfaces for AVR microcontrollers

While there are many chips available for interfacing USB to microcontrollers, most of them involve some costs in both development and component count.

Two low cost alternatives to interfacing ATmega microcontrollers to USB are AVR-USB from Objective Development, and the range of USB interface chips from FTDI Chip.
