I am looking for a good, working USB chicklet to go into the robot controller board. If anyone knows of a brand or type, could you please copy the link to it or give me the info on it. TY to all who respond.
what are you trying to do?
program the RC via USB?
connect a usb joystick to the OI?
Interface some sort of usb device with the RC?
please elaborate on what you need to do....

I am trying to get my code first on a laptop, but the problem is that we are low on funds so we can't get a six pin connector laptop, so instead we get another laptop and transfer the code through a USB cable. Problem is that the USB chord has to go to a chicklet that is a 6-pin that connects to the robot board, the one where you download code on to. We also need a USB chicklet for The controllers because we are getting controllers that have USB cables so we need a chicklet to go from USB to the Robot Operator Control board. So I am in need of two different kinds of chicklets, that are good!
Ok for programming you can use any off-the-shelf usb-to-DB9 converter.

look for stuff that resembles this:
For the Joystick-to-OperatorInterface I don't think there are any other options besides the IFI chicklet:
