In electronic systems and computing, firmware is a term often used to denote the fixed, usually rather small, programs and/or data structures that internally control various electronic devices.
There are no strict boundaries between firmware and software, as both are quite loose descriptive terms. However, the term firmware was originally coined to contrast with higher-level software which could be changed without replacing a computer hardware component.

Also, when you are hardware designers, you have tremendously more discipline in writing and describing software because in hardware you cannot get it wrong.
— Founders at Work
Software in small becomes hardware in big:
Part of your intelligence hardware
is your intelligence software installed when you were small.
