EEMBC to Benchmark Embedded Processors with Floating Point Units

The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) is developing new benchmarks that will track the performance of embedded processors with floating-point hardware units. Floating point (FP) refers to the ability of an embedded processor to crunch numbers that are too large or small to be represented as integers. Many embedded processors include hardware FP units (FPUs) to enable higher levels of precision. The new EEMBC benchmarks will enable embedded system developers to evaluate FPU performance on the basis of consistent and controlled data.
