EEMBC Contributors Significantly Help Align Industry Benchmarks with Key Technology Trends

The 2013 results are in and Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) honors 11 members who have contributed significantly to the development of next-generation industry benchmarks. These individuals have been critical to the successful development of EEMBC’s second-generation benchmark for measuring Android platform and hardware performance, the definition and development of a more advanced CoreMark®, and the extraordinary efforts in the ultra-low power working group. Thanks to the amazing efforts of these members, developers will gain the ability to better compare the strengths of processors and platforms using industry-standard benchmarks designed to establish fair and equitable metrics.

The need for industry-standard performance benchmarks is increasing as both the hardware and software used to develop systems grows in complexity. EEMBC, with the support of its members, will soon release its second-generation AndEBench™ to measure Android device performance. It is a significantly more advanced benchmark than EEMBC AndEBench v1, which was released in early 2012. Until now, EEMBC has not released any details on its more advanced CoreMark, but suffice it to say it will have a similar usage model to CoreMark, but will be comprised of a significantly more sophisticated workload. Earlier this month, EEMBC announced the availability of its ULPBench, which early adopters may order by contacting EEMBC directly.

Eleven EEMBC members stand out for the significant impact they have had in the creation and advancement of these much-needed industry benchmark initiatives:

Second-Generation 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.

Second-Generation CoreMark

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

ULPBench

  • Horst Diewald from 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 from TI for taking over as chair of the ULPBench working group and managing the completion of ULPBench-CoreProfile.
  • Joseph Yiu from ARM for testing ULPBench functionality on ARM platforms and providing extensive results to the working group.
  • Mark Wallis from STMicroelectronics for providing insights and constructive feedback on the ULPBench requirements.
  • Mitch Butler from Renesas for creating and contributing the source code for the ULPBench harness, a key component to enable portability and usability.

Creating meaningful performance benchmarks is a task that crosses company and product lines and requires the pooling of expertise, time, and efforts of industry leaders. While the number of contributors to EEMBC continues to grow, these individuals have contributed to the EEMBC effort above and beyond their responsibilities within their respective companies, and with the support of these companies, have contributed to the greater good of the industry.

“A successful consortium is made up of individuals who are dedicated to making a difference and moving the industry forward,” said Markus Levy, EEMBC president. “I would like to personally thank these individuals for their commitment and technical expertise that has been invaluable in defining many of the EEMBC benchmarks. This announcement only reflects the significant contributors of 2013, and in 2014 we are already seeing a greater number of significant contributors as well as more activity in general from the EEMBC members.”
