ASMedia USB3.1 to PCIE NVME (ASM2362) Driver/Firmware

The ASM2362 Chipset is used to bridge PCI Express (M.2) SSD drives to a USB 3.1/C compatible port, allowing backups of SSD and even booting a operating system straight from the SSD. They are pretty cheap too, you can pick them up for around $10 on Ebay and other places. There are no drivers for this device as it will be detected by all modern operating systems. There is a firmware upgrade that can be downloaded below. Use with caution.

Basic Specs:

• USB to PCI Express NVMe SSD bridge
• Integrated 10Gbps mux for type-C application
• Integrated CC Logic for type-C application
• Support SPI interface with external ROM for customized RAM code
• Support I2C and GPIOs and UART interface
• Internal 3.3V to 2.5V LDO
• Local 25MHz crystal
