Definition of Firmware


Firmware

Firmware is a combination of software and hardware. Computer chips that have data or programs recorded on them are firmware. These chips commonly include the following:

  • ROMs (read-only memory)
  • PROMs (programmable read-only memory)
  • EPROMs (erasable programmable read-only memory)

Firmware in PROM or EPROM is designed to be updated if necessary through a software update
