Software rarely has much effect on a system's radiated and conducted emissions (electromagnetic compatibility, EMC), but it can have a huge effect on the system's:
Tolerance for operator errors, misuse, and abuse.
Immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI).
Immunity to electrostatic discharge (ESD).
Some things that software can do that may reduce emissions are:
Staggering the starting/stopping of motors, instead of starting/stopping them simultaneously.
Switching a UART from input mode to output mode by going input-tristate-output, instead of input-output.
Using RAM inside the microprocessor/microcontroller for frequently-used variables.
Not sending high-data-rate signals to peripherals that don't need them.
We want to protect the system from:
Transient errors ...
