With such a small PCB the USB connector is significant, and as a flash drive,
the device would act as a 'receiver'.  Where are the output connections for
it to be a driver?     The power-supply via USB confuses me, eg. when 2 
female connector devices are interconnected. 
It seems that the documentation for USB is secret.
Who remember's decades ago, when "IBM was introducing a new 'bus'
which could not be 'decoded', so that the commodity producers couldn't
clone the IBM-PC" ?
