EEMBC Update - February 2010

EEMBC's Shay Gal-On will join David Kleidermacher (Chief Technology Officer, Green Hills Software) in presenting the tutorial "How to Choose a Multicore Processor for Embedded Networking Devices" at the Embedded Systems Conference and Multicore Expo. The tutorial will take place Monday (April 26, 2010) 1:00pm - 5:00pm. Note: Friday February 19 is the last day to register to take advantage of the early bird pricing.

On February 24th, Shay Gal-On (EEMBC) and Michael Githens (Ixia) will co-present "Analyzing a Platform's TCP Performance and Compliance" at the Ethernet Summit" in San Jose. We will also be demonstrating a new benchmark at this event so be sure to stop by our booth.

EEMBC adds blog to the website
Come see what we've got to say; we'd also like to hear from you. To post, click on Blog menu, then click login. You can choose to post a blog for EEMBC, Coremark or both. Only EEMBC members can post, but anybody is invited to comment and the dialog will be informative.

We welcome two new board members this month: Andes Technology from Taiwan and Advanced Digital Chips from Korea.

Free EnergyBench available with licensing of any EEMBC benchmark suite.

A. There are 76 scores posted to the CoreMark website. Here are some of the most recent ones posted:

    MIPS 34K @ 1MHz with gcc 4.5.0 (running in simulation)
    Texas Instruments OMAP3530 @ 500MHz with GCC4.3.3
    Freescale iMX25 @ 398MHz with GCC4.2.0 20070413
    Texas Instruments MSP430FG4618 @ 8 MHz with IAR C/C++
      for MSP430
    Atmel ATmega644 @ 20 MHz with avr-gcc-4.3.2
    Tilera TILEPro64 (TLR36480BG-9C) @ 866MHz with GCCEDG gcc 3.2 mode (tile-cc 2.1)
    Xilinx MicroBlaze in Spartan XC3S700A FPGA @ 62.5MHz with gcc 4.1.1

B. We've added a new feature to allow you to vote on scores. Do you agree with the score? Could it have been run with a better configuration (i.e. different compiler, better compiler flags)? View the CoreMark scores and tell us what you think (look for the Thumbs-up and Thumbs-down symbols).

If you do not wish to receive e-mail from EEMBC, you can un-subscribe. EEMBC sends no more than one e-mail per month to registered users at www.eembc.org. Continuing your subscription ensures you'll be notified when new scores and other important announcements are available.
