I only did that to prototype.

I then took the schematics (and datasheets) for those components and integrated the bits that make them up directly onto my board.

For example, I have this little widget called a USBHostShield I used in my prototype. I also have the schematic. It uses a MAX3421E to do the heavy lifting, so I integrated that MAX chip right onto my board, along with any necessary pullup resistors etc.

An SD socket is actually just a socket. the SD card itself is an SPI device, and as such can communicate directly with the MCU without intermediary circuitry. You can actually solder an SD card right onto an ESP32 and it will use it quite happily.
To err is human. Fortune favors the monsters.

Straw Poll

When thinking about your job, how important is the option to work from home?
Some bosses are casual about where you work, and some, naming no names, will insist you're in the office, always. What are your thoughts?
