Benchmark Stresses Big Chips
The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC), a trade group of 47 chip and system designers, released CoreMark-Pro. The suite of benchmarks for 32- and 64-bit processors expands the original CoreMark, a single performance test released in 2009 for microcontrollers and processors.
Separately EEMBC is working on several other benchmarks including a processor-agnostic suite for servers and an update of its existing benchmark for low power controllers.

In addition, the group hopes to release later this year a systems-level benchmark for IoT end nodes. It will simulate and measure sensor input and communications output as well as MCU performance.

EEMBC also revived a networking working group. It aims to update a ten-year-old networking benchmark, targeting emerging features in software-defined networks and network-function virtualization.

“It’s still a little abstract at the moment, but the working group is meeting regularly again after a 6-7 year hiatus -- it’s a top priority," Levy said.
