I intend to drive 9-10 r/c servos (Hitec) using the control board (schematic) shown below:

At the present, there are already 5 sensors on-board: 2 PING sensors and 3 IR sensors occupying 5 I/Os of the control board. Now, in order to drive 10-11 r/c servos (possibly Hitec 645MG) using the same control board, what options do I currently have?
Is it possible to interface a SSC32 to this board? This way SSC32 may take control of all the servos. The control board is equipped with a propeller micro-controller. My plan is to do all the maths/calculations on a PC which may simply send PWM signals to SSC32 through the propeller. My interest lies in a solution which requires the least hardware modifications.
I am really novice in hardware modifications and hardware programming so any plug & play solution would definitely help me greatly. I therefore request forum members to guide me in this regard.
Appreciate your time and help.
