Does the Arduino software emulate hardware?


Good day community of StackOverflow!

I have been researching on the internet about the official Arduino software to determine whether or not it can emulate hardware, that is, I need to know if the Arduino software emulates in a virtual environment as any microcontroller would behave in reality (as it does the Proteus program for example).

I have read a lot of forums in English and Spanish but I do not give the solution to my concern so I would like some member that I have used previously to confirm whether or not I can emulate software since the information I have read is very vague. on his official page.


Observation: I specifically ask about the Arduino software since I have read several "arduino's simulator" which are third-party programs that I'm not interested in at the moment.

Thank you in advance for all the collaboration you can give me. Greetings!

If I'm not wrong, the Arduino software is just an environment to program code lines and then transfer it to the board. He does not have a simulator like Proteus, I would say.
