Walking the exhibit floors at DAC in December I spotted the familiar face of Anupam  Bakshi, Founder and CEO of Agnisys, so I stopped by the booth to get an update on his EDA company.

Agnisys QEMU

Last month, I blogged about a webinar on embedded systems development presented by Agnisys CEO and founder Anupam Bakshi. I liked the way that he linked their various tools into a common flow that spans hardware, software, design, verification, validation, and documentation.
