Claim of US Patent No. 10,485,125

1. A universal serial bus (USB) device, comprising:a semiconductor device, comprising:
first and second opposed surfaces extending between first and second edges;
one or more semiconductor die affixed to one of the first and second opposed surfaces, and
a first set of contact fingers mounted at a first position on one of the first and second opposed surfaces, and a second set of contact fingers mounted at a second position on one of the first and second opposed surfaces different than the first position, the first and second sets of contact fingers electrically connected to the one or more semiconductor die; and
a USB connector configured to connect with a host device within a USB slot, the USB connector comprising:
a first set of electrical contacts mounted within a first contacts assembly affixed on the first surface of the semiconductor device, the first set of electrical contacts having first ends physically coupled to the first set of contact fingers, and the first set of electrical contacts having second ends, opposite the first ends, terminating at a proximal end of the USB device, and
a second set of electrical contacts mounted within a second contacts assembly affixed on the second surface of the semiconductor device, the second set of electrical contacts having first ends physically coupled to the second set of contact fingers, and the second set of electrical contacts having second ends, opposite the first ends, terminating at the proximal end of the USB device.
