The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) develops benchmarks to help system designers select the optimal processors and understand the performance and energy characteristics of their systems. EEMBC has benchmark suites targeting cloud and big data, mobile devices (for Android phones and tablets), networking, ultra-low power microcontrollers, the Internet of Things (IOT), digital media, Java, automotive, and other application areas. EEMBC also has benchmarks for general-purpose performance analysis including CoreMark, MultiBench (multicore), and FPMark (floating-point operations).

Consortium Leadership

Markus Levy
EEMBC President

Markus Levy is founder and president of EEMBC. He is also president of the Multicore Association and chairman of the Multicore Developers Conference and IoT Developers Conference..

Mr. Levy was previously a senior analyst at In-Stat/MDR and an editor at EDN magazine, focusing in both roles on processors for the embedded industry.

Levy began his career in the semiconductor industry at Intel Corporation, where he served as both a senior applications engineer and customer training specialist for Intel's microprocessor and flash memory products. He is the co-author of Designing with Flash Memory, the one and only technical book on this subject, and received several patents while at Intel for his ideas related to flash memory architecture and usage as a disk drive alternative. He is also a volunteer firefighter.

 

 

Shay Gal-On
EEMBC Director of Software Engineering

Shay Gal-On is EEMBC's Director of Software Engineering and leader of the EEMBC Technology Center. Under the direction of EEMBC working groups, Shay created benchmarks such as AndEBench-Pro, BrowsingBench, CoreMark, MultiBench, and ULPBench.

Prior to EEMBC, Shay was Principal Performance Analyst in the Microprocessor Products Group at PMC Sierra where he influenced the design of new processors, including instruction set design, and optimized both hardware and software products. Other roles in the microprocessor industry over the past decades include Improv Systems where Shay created unique hardware-software codesign tools, and Intel where Shay created production libraries for analysis and optimization of binaries used in simulators, compilers, and binary translators.
