WHO INVENTED THE USB WHO CALL A FLASH DRIVER?



When did usb flash drives emerge? Who invented usb flash drives? What's the difference between a USB Flash Drive and a Flash Drive? Well, The USB Flash Drive was introduced in 1996. The USB interfaced NAND memory was invented by Dov Moran. He worked for M-Systems, where the very first Flash Drive was manufactured.
Netac and Trek2000, Ltd. developed similar porducts about the same time. All three companies, M-Systems, Netac and Trek2000, have very similar and hotly disputed patents. The first Flash Drive was manufactured and distributed in Europe under the "disgo" brand name. It was only available in four sizes; 8MB, 16MB, 32MB, and 64MB. The first distributor in North America was IBM.

I believe the USB port was co-invented by an Indian called Ajay Bhatt. He s currently working in Intel.

Atleast Intel would like you to believe that Mr. Bhatt is the "co-inventor". I have found no information to back up this claim.

I just came across this news in the hulu commercial of Intel. And yes, promotional marketing campaigns do not always give you genuine information.
