LONDON The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) has released its first openly-available benchmark. Traditionally EEMBC benchmarks focus on specific embedded market segments and provide real-world performance of embedded processors.
CoreMark 1.0 provides a starting point for measuring a processor’s core performance and basic pipeline structure and can be used to evaluate processors ranging from 8-bit microcontrollers to high-end 32-bit devices and architectures.
EEMBC benchmarks, including CoreMark, are defined by EEMBC members and are tested on a variety of platforms prior to release with the intention of establishing an industry standard.
