The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) develops benchmark software to help system designers select the optimal processors, and benchmark tools to help consumers and IT professionals select the appropriate smart phones/tablets and networking firewall appliances. EEMBC organizes its benchmark suites targeting Automotive, Digital Media, Java, Multicore Processors, Networking, Office Automation, Signal Processing, Smartphones/Tablets and Browsers.

Key Contributors

EEMBC Contributors Advance Industry Benchmarks in Lockstep with Technology Trends

AndEBench

  • Ronen Zohar of Intel for chairing the AndEBench working group, providing his extensive knowledge of Android platform testing, and helping with the platform OpenGL tests.
  • Dibas Chandra of NVIDIA for providing the new benchmark’s eye-catching 3D tests.
  • Derek Miller and Hazim Shafi of Samsung Electronics for developing the proposal and helping debug the storage test; for recommending memory bandwidth test improvements; and in general providing extensive testing feedback.

BrowsingBench

  • Mansoor Chishtie of Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) chaired the BrowsingBench working group where he dedicated himself to creating a credible and realistic benchmark for smartphone and tablet performance. He was also instrumental in defining the test framework that can measure real-world browsing performance non-intrusively and with repeatable accuracy. Under Mansoor’s leadership, this simple-to-use and highly effective BrowsingBench 1.0 provides the only cross-platform browsing benchmark in the industry.
  • Mason Guy of Intel took an active role in the development of BrowsingBench, ensuring that the benchmark included workloads to expand the range of content delivered by tablets. Additionally, Mason provided critical analyses that became the foundation for working group decisions about the stability of BrowsingBench and defined system configuration functions for performing battery-life testing.

CoreMark-HPC

  • Carl Hein of Lockheed Martin for chairing the CoreMark working group and helping keep track of the many details.
  • Bryan Chin of Cavium for providing realistic scenarios for adoption into CoreMark.

FPMark

  • Rajiv Adhikary of Analog Devices provided technical guidance that pushed the FPMark initiative to adopt a non-proprietary and transparent standard of “goodness” in order to achieve wide acceptance and usability. His extensive research and industry collaboration have brought a depth and thoroughness that strengthen the FPBench effort.
  • Luther Johnson of Microchip Technology determined fair and reliable cross-platform accuracy requirements for FPMark critical to the evaluation of floating-point performance. Luther applied his understanding of libraries and compilers to evaluate and recommend math function libraries for software-only reference implementations, and tested and ported multiple libraries to make FPBench safe for 16-bit microcontrollers.

ULPBench

  • Horst Diewald of TI (retired now) for initiating the ULPBench working group and diligently chairing the working group; for pushing the requirements and moving along the schedule.
  • Stefan Schauer of TI for taking over as chair of the ULPBench working group and managing the completion of ULPBench-CoreProfile.
  • Joseph Yiu of ARM for testing ULPBench functionality on ARM platforms and providing extensive results to the working group.
  • Mark Wallis of STMicroelectronics for providing insights and constructive feedback on the ULPBench requirements.
  • Mitch Butler of Renesas for creating and contributing the source code for the ULPBench harness, a key component to enable portability and usability.
