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).

Upcoming Events

Linley Mobile Conference
April 22 - 23, 2015
Santa Clara, California

Learn about design innovation for next-generation mobile devices.

Innovation in mobile chip and sytem design is accelerating. Smartphones and tablets already deliver capabililties that previously required desktop PCs and bulky consumer electronics, including multicore computing, high-resolution graphics for console-quality gamiing, HD video displays, and DSLR-quality cameras. Next generation devices will add more powerful 64-bit processors, 4K video recording and playback, and computer vision capabilities that can sense and recognize a user's environment in three dimensions. Wearable devices will shrink many of these functions into even smaller packages, and new functions for communications, entertainment, fitness, and health.

To deliver these new capabiltities, mobile processors must integrate a plethora of IP cores, including big and little CPUs, DSPs, GPUs, video, security, and NoCs to connect them all. Mobile systems also require complex RF design, power management, and sensor hubs.

This two-day, single-track conference features technical presentations addressing design issues for devices such as tablets, smartphones, and media players, along with emerging categories such as smartwatches and wearable devices. The Linley Group will also present an overview of the market, technologies, equipment-design, and silicon trends for designers of mobile devices.

This event is the only one of its kind focused on mobile platform design.

The program will include technical presentations and panel discussions addressing a broad range of topics including the following:

- Mobile semiconductor overview
- Multicore application processors
- Licensable CPUs for mobile devices
- Licensable GPU, DSP, and NoC cores
- Other low-power IP cores
- Mobile SoC design issues
- Mobile software trends

This conference is intended for *designers of mobile chips, mobile devices, and mobile software as well as service providers, press, and the financial community. Attendance is free to *qualified registrants.

The conference includes:
- Sponsor exhibits and demos
- Evening networking reception on the first day
- Raffles by The Linley Group
- Hosted speaker tables at lunch (meet the presenters)
- Free parking
- Continental breakfasts and gourmet lunches
- Free Wi-Fi
