Can I design and build my own thumb drive circuit Answered


Does anybody know if/where I can find information on how to design and build my own thumb drive?  All I have been able to find are companies that let you design your own case.  I can do that myself but I want to learn how to assemble the circuitry.

No.
If you could, you'd have at least 50% of what you need to do worked-out already and be asking us highly-technical questions.
Not at all easy to do.

Just starting out in circuitry. Thought this would be a nice "small" product to start with. Thanks for the response

The problem with physically small things like this is that everything has been crammed into tiny components on a tiny board...
A nice small project might involves e.g. a 555, see if any of these interest you:

.  I found that by C&Ping "thumb drive circuit" from your title to the Google search text entry box and hitting the Enter key. Use a search engine before asking questions.
