  1. Hi folks,

    I've been looking for a USB Flash Memory maker but I don't manage to find a single address. I found hundreds USB key makers I'm not interested in. I just want the electronic system you put inside the USB key to make my own one. Could you help me to find a site? Thank you in advance.

    You need a controller chip (search for usb flash controller) and a flash chip.

    And some mad soldering skills because AFAIK all these chips come in surface-mount packages which are a PITA to handle manually.

    I suggest you find either an electronics dealer and play with what they have to offer. Pick a controller chip, read the spec sheet and application notes and then pick the rest of the components according to that.
