Firmware Downloads and Support files

TIC's policy is for product lifetime firmware support. Current firmwares are available below, and contain feature enhancements as well as any bug fixes.

Two different methods of update are used across TIC products.


Non SD-Card

Non SD-Card equipped products are supported via a PC based firmware download utility. This stand-alone .EXE (Plus a C library DLL if needed) is available below. 

Firmware files are .TIC file types.

It's best to create a directory on your PC for TIC product upgrades. Download the down-loader below, and if necessary the DLL (This may well already be on your PC). Download the .TIC file of interest, into the same directory. Please see the TIC down-loader instruction manual for full instructions for .TIC upgrades.


SD-Card equipped

SD-Card equipped products are updated with .BIN files. These must be copied to the root directory of a FAT16 or FAT32 micro (TF) SD-card. Note that TIC currently only support FAT32 cards with single cluster root directories. We recommend formatting FAT32 cards prior to use - to avoid any possibility of a multiple cluster root directory. Simply erasing all files is not a guarantee.

Also provided below are Excel template files (in CSV format) that can be used as a starting point for building databases for our Touch Controllers.

iT508/Aquarille Touch.

Update via SD-Card(FAT16 or FAT32 TF (Micro) card required)
