USB to USB copy device (bridge/host)

by Lalela on Thu Oct 30, 2008 11:49 pm

Hi All,
I'm looking to create a device with a basic text LCD and button control.
The aim is to to be able to browseone memory device (CF/SD memory) and copy selected files to another memory stick (in this case flash memory).

For a not-for-profit concept roughly outlined here: http://www.lalela.org
Device in question here: http://www.lalela.org/distiller

There are a few contenders available off the shelf however expensive and most no longer in production... Idea is to develop something cheap and open-source sothat ultimately they can be made up on the ground in the devloping countries they intend to service..

Any thoughts or recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

for usb otg or host see the at90usb647 and at90usb1287 or the maybe ftdi vinculum. i have no actual experience with them but they seem like likely starting points.
