I would like to say:

Available calculation methods are limited to few software. With "few", I mean 3 programs. However, "software" is an uncountable noun. "Some" and "little" sound also weird?

Available calculation methods are limited to few software.

Available calculation methods are limited to little software.

Available calculation methods are limited to some software.

As you say, "software" is uncountable. This leaves you with a number of options, such as "software packages" or "pieces of software".
