This firmware demo implements a USB Mass Storage Device (MSD) using the board microSD card, with the 320x240 LCD displaying the details. The Decaf-1 hardware limits the USB transfer rate to Full Speed (12Mbps).

MicroSD cards of 2, 4, 8 or 16 GB are automatically supported and the identified card capacity is displayed. Note that the actual capacity of SD cards are approximate, so for example, a 16GB SD card is actually 14.9GB.

If a terminal app is connected to the board COM port, details of the MSD activities are displayed.

The volume name can be set as needed. Functionally the board is identical to a memory stick device.
