Can the edgeport/8 be hooked up to a microcontroller that has usb support?

I am interested in setting up an Edgeport/8 to be hooked up to the atsame70-xpld microcontroller board. I know this would at the very minimum involve me using an usb adapter and writing code on the microcontroller to replace the drivers that are for this device. I wanted to know if this is possible or if there are alternative suggestions on getting 8 rs232/rs485 ports for a microcontroller.

Haven't heard of this being done previously and writing drivers might be fairly involved and time consuming.

The only alternative would be to use network enabled serial ports with products, such as the ConnectPort TS MEI or the ConnectPort LTS MEI. You could simply establish a TCP connection to the serial ports without the need of any drivers.
