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).

ETCPBench™ Benchmark Software

The Industry's First Standard TCP/IP Performance and Conformance Test

TCP was first introduced in 1974 and is very standardized, so why the need to test it now?
There was no prior standard for measuring TCP/IP performance (similar to MPG in cars or PPM in printers - standards only apply under certain assumptions).

ETCPBench Provides Testing from Low-End Microcontrollers to High-End Processors for Data Center Equipment

  • Most any platform ranging from development boards to complete system

EEMBC's First System-Level Test Automates Network/Protocol Validation with IxANVL and IxLoad

  • Fully Supported in Collaboration with Ixia
  • Traffic Generation Provided by IxLoad
  • Performance measured using IxLoad TCL interface
  • Supports all industry-standard test interfaces from 10/100/1000 to 40G

The EEMBC Technology Center (ETC) offering:

  • Independent benchmark testing services including full system configuration and setup
  • Certification to verify full compliance to standardized run rules
  • Utilizes Ixia's iSimCity as a base for ETCP test validation operations

ETCPBench is available for EEMBC's members and licensees:

  • Certification available at iSimCity for EEMBC's members
  • This suite can also be licensed from Ixia by members and non-members to prepare for certification
  • ETC offers official certifications for prices starting at $6000 for platforms supporting 1-48 ports of 1 GbE

 

EEMBC Collaboration with IXIA


"Our new benchmark suite is applicable for a wide variety of platforms ranging from microcontrollers with integrated Ethernet support to high-end processors for data center equipment. To accommodate this range of platforms, EEMBC offers multiple real-world performance and compliance scenarios targeted for particular market segments." Muhammad Raghib Hussain, Cavium's CTO & corporate vice president of software and EEMBC's chair of the Networking working group.
