IoTMark benchmark available for BLE edge nodes

By eeNews Europe

The IoTMark-BLE benchmark is part of the organisation’s IoTMark benchmarking suite. The BLE profile models a real IoT edge node consisting of an I²C sensor and a BLE radio through sleep, advertise, and connected-mode operation. The benchmark measures the energy required to power the edge node platform and to run the tests fed by the benchmark. The benchmark is centred on the IoTConnect framework, a low-cost benchmarking harness used by multiple EEMBC benchmarks. The framework provides an external sensor emulator, a BLE gateway, and an energy monitor. The host system controls this framework, runs the benchmark, and performs verification to ensure that the DUT performed the benchmark correctly.

Benchmark users interact with the DUT via an interface with which they can set a number of tightly defined parameters, such as connection interval, I²C speed, BLE transmission power, and more. Default values are provided to enable direct comparisons between DUTs, or users can change them to analyze a design’s sensitivity to each parameter. IoTMark-BLE’s IoTConnect framework supports microcontrollers and radio modules from any vendor, and it is compatible with any embedded operating system, software stack, or OEM hardware.
