A softmodem can be described as a modem that has minimal hardware capabilities and that is designed to use the resources of the host computer such as CPU power, Ram and even audio hardware in performing many of the tasks that are performed by dedicate hardware in a conventional modem. A softmodem is also referred to as a software modem or winmodem reason being because their initial target was Microsoft Windows operating systems that run IBM PC compatibles. There usage has however spread to other machines and operating systems such as Linux and embedded systems though they work better on Window operating systems because other operating systems do not have vendor support as well as standard device interface. They are advantageous because they operate less by themselves and thus a computer program is able to use a Softmodem as another thing than a modem meaning that it can imitate a signal generator or answering machine.
