The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) announces availability of the first version of the Ultra-Low Power benchmark (ULPBench™), which is a standardized, industry-developed and endorsed method to encourage microcontroller vendors to provide application developers with accurate, reliable information that allows them to equitably compare the efficiency of microcontrollers targeted at ultra-low power applications. Available now, ULPBench-CP (core profile) measures CPU core efficiency, the MCU’s real-time clock and calendar function (RTCC), and power modes.

EEMBC announces FPMark™, a new Floating-Point benchmark suite that tracks the performance of embedded processors with floating-point hardware units, a necessary feature for high-end processing tasks.

EEMBC and Volkswagen announce an expanded working group project to develop an energy-efficiency benchmark for microcontrollers meant to make automotive end products more energy aware and more robust.

The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) announces plans to develop an industry-standard method to evaluate the energy efficiency of ultra-low power microcontrollers. The benchmark will give designers a much-needed way to test, validate and compare the real-world energy consumption of MCUs used in products with extended battery life.

The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium honors five members for efforts in the creation and advancement of Floating Point, CoreMark, Smartphone, and Android industry benchmark initiatives.
