Yes/No.

Kingston is a brand name (they buy USB sticks made by third parties and sell them with their "brand" name).

Sandisk is not (it is both a brand and seemingly a manufacturer of both chips and devices).

 

The "Device Vendor" is usually the "brand".

The "Device Manufacturer" can be both the "brand" or the actual device manufacturer.

The "Controller Vendor" is the actual manufacturer of the main controller chip.

The VID may be in some cases accurate (while in some cases it is not), see:

http://reboot.pro/to...d-manufacturer/



Basically some "brands" have and use their own USB VID(s) overwriting the "default" chip manufacturer's VID, some other "brands" keep untouched the VID as provided by the manufacturer.

The "brand" name in your case is "ABC" that is also indicated as "device manufacturer".
The "chip manufacturer" name in your case is SMI.
The USB VID of 090C is the "generic" VID from the manufacturer SMI (Silicon Motion).

The chip SM3257ENLT is a rather "common" one, there may be tens or hundreds of "device manufacturers" making devices with it and tens or hundreds of "brands" commercializing the devices.
