The software of the single-phase project is a Human-Machine Interface coded in Python.
It can retrieve data from the hardware through the firmware, making it a bottom-up data gathering tool.
It can also set parameters in the firmware which can change the behaviour of the hardware, making it a top-down control/development tool.
To do so, the Software uses a back-end, which can communicate information between the front-end, where the HMI is implemented, and the firmware.
-> there should be a figure here illustrating the operation of the software
The sections below will detail the Front-End and the Back-End.
