Quick Start: Firmware Update

How to update the firmware on your HIL device.

The HIL Firmware Manager application allows the user to automatically upgrade firmware on multiple HIL40x/60x devices and customize device settings. All device firmware files are packed together with the Typhoon HIL Control Center installation and an additional firmware download is not required.

The Firmware Manager lets you either start the upgrade process on the desired device or, if your firmware is up to date, change your firmware configuration. Updating multiple connected devices of the same type is also possible; the Firmware Manager will update them sequentially, one at a time.

Important: Do not turn off or unplug the HIL device during the firmware update procedure as it may result in the HIL device being unusable.
Important: During the firmware update procedure, all other Typhoon HIL applications should be closed.

Perform the firmware upgrade procedure by following the steps below:

  • Power up and connect the HIL device
  • Run the HIL Firmware Manager application. Upon start the Firmware Manager will automatically detect all connected HIL devices and show their firmware status.
  • Select the desired HIL device and click on the Update Firmware button. The Firmware Manager will find the appropriate firmware and start the update process automatically.
Note: The Firmware Update option is available for multiple devices only if all selected devices are of the same type.
Note: The Change Configuration option is available for multiple devices only if all selected devices are of the same type and their firmware is up to date.
  • Firmware update progress for each selected device is shown in a separate window
  • The firmware upgrade or configuration change procedure can take more than a minute to complete. After updates are finished on all devices, an appropriate message is shown.
