Hi

Firmware can hold with it an operating system - and most of them do but not all

All the best

normally Firmwares wil run the Embedded System. ican call it as a mini OS. These will be having minimum limited applications on it.
I think you know about the OS.

irmware is the programming that is embedded on a chip in the device and which controls that device whereas software is the programming that provides functionality over that which is provided by the firmware.
