Software runs on an Operating System (OS) such as Linux, Android, or iOS.
The difference between software and firmware is that software requires (and benefits from) an Operating System. An OS is relatively resource-hungry in terms of power, memory, and processing power. But it also provides broad and versatile tools for managing those resources and developing complex behaviors. Your phone probably implements either the Android or iOS operating system.
Software also runs on desktop computers, and Porticos develops software to interact with the custom devices that we design. For example, we might generate Windows software to communicate with a WiFi-enabled IoT device, or Android software to test the range of a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) product.
