SMSC makes a USB floppy disk controller chip. Internally it contains
a 765 floppy disk controller controlled by an 8051 microcontroller.
>From the datasheet it's not clear whether or not the hardware and
standard firmware support 5.25" floppy drives.


Power would not have to come from the USB bus. A USB device can have
its own power supply.
