Jmicron Firmware Update Tool: A Step-by-Step Tutorial for Bridge Controllers



Jmicron Firmware Update Tool: What It Is and How to Use It




If you have a device that uses a Jmicron controller, such as a USB to SATA bridge or a PCIe to SATA bridge, you might want to update its firmware to improve its performance and compatibility. But how do you do that? In this article, we will explain what Jmicron is, what firmware is, why you need to update it, and how to use the Jmicron firmware update tool.

Introduction




Jmicron is a company that specializes in storage solutions, such as bridge controllers, port multipliers, smart sensors, and radar gesture recognition. They provide various products that enable data transfer between different interfaces, such as USB, PCIe, SATA, UFS, and UHS.


What is firmware?




Firmware is a type of software that controls the hardware of a device. It is usually stored in a flash memory or a ROM chip inside the device. Firmware provides the basic functions and instructions for the device to operate properly.


Why do you need to update firmware?




Updating firmware can bring several benefits to your device, such as:


  • Fixing bugs and errors



  • Enhancing performance and stability



  • Adding new features and functions



  • Improving compatibility with other devices and systems



However, updating firmware also involves some risks, such as:


  • Bricking your device if the update fails or is interrupted



  • Voiding your warranty if the update is not authorized by the manufacturer



  • Losing your data if you don't back it up before updating



Therefore, you should only update firmware when it is necessary and when you are confident that you can do it safely.


How to download Jmicron firmware update tool




To update your Jmicron controller's firmware, you will need two things: the Jmicron firmware update tool and the firmware file for your specific controller model. Here's how to get them:


Visit the official website




The first step is to go to https://www.jmicron.com/download, which is the official website of Jmicron where you can find all their products and downloads. You can browse by category or use the search function to find your controller model.


Choose the right controller model




The next step is to choose the right controller model for your device. For example, if you have a USB 3.1 Gen 2 to PCIe Gen 3x2 bridge controller, you should look for JMS583. If you have a USB 3.0 to dual SATA 6Gbps bridge controller, you should look for JMS561. Make sure you select the correct model that matches your device's specifications.


Download the tool and the firmware file




The last step is to download both the tool and the firmware file for your controller model. The tool is usually named FwUpdateTool_vX_X_X_X.exe, where X represents the version number. The firmware file is usually named XXXX.bin or XXXX.hex, where XXXX represents the model number. Save them in a folder on your computer where you can easily access them later.


How to use Jmicron firmware update tool




Now that you have downloaded both the tool and the firmware file, you are ready to use them to update your controller's firmware. Here are the steps:


Connect your device to the computer




The first step is to connect your device that uses the Jmicron controller to your computer via USB or PCIe. Make sure it is recognized by your computer and that it has power supply.


Run the tool as administrator




The next step is to run the tool as administrator on your computer. To do this, right-click on FwUpdateTool_vX_X_X_X.exe and select "Run as administrator". A window will pop up asking for permission. Click "Yes" to proceed.


Select the device and the firmware file




The third step is to select your device and the firmware file in the tool's interface. You will see a list of devices that are connected to your computer. Choose the one that corresponds to your Jmicron controller. Then, click on "Browse" and locate the firmware file that you downloaded earlier. Click on "Open" to select it.


Click on update and wait for completion




The last step is to click on "Update" and wait for the process to complete. Do not disconnect your device or turn off your computer during this time. You will see a progress bar showing how much time is left until completion. When it reaches 100%, you will see a message saying "Update OK". Click on "OK" and close the tool.
