What is Firmware?
by kp

Firmware is software that is used to control a hardware device. This software is found within the ROM (Read Only Memory) of the hardware. It is an essential component for communication between the hardware and user interface, because it controls the functionality of the specified device. Firmware is included with the device, but can be modified or may need updated when a new operating system is installed.
