Samsung Electronics Joins EEMBC Board of Directors

(PresseBox) (EL DORADO HILLS, Calif, ) The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) today announced that Samsung Electronics is the consortium's newest member. Samsung joins EEMBC as a member of the consortium's board of directors, with full voting rights on all major issues decided by the consortium, plus full access to all of the EEMBC® benchmarks.

"Samsung is a leader in advanced semiconductor solutions representing many processor architectures and many applications," said EEMBC president Markus Levy. "Its involvement with EEMBC will provide some well-rounded guidance."

Samsung joins EEMBC at an exciting moment, as the consortium is completing work on its next-generation networking and multicore benchmarks, defining its first suite of benchmarks aimed at hypervisors (virtual machine monitors), and studying the benefits of scenario-based benchmarking for applications such as audio and video.


EEMBC, the Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium, develops benchmark software that helps processor architects and embedded system designers better understand the capabilities of embedded microprocessors and the systems in which they are used. Currently available benchmark software allows users to predict unicore and multicore processor performance and its associated energy cost in digital entertainment, digital imaging, networking, and office automation applications. Additional suites address automotive, embedded Java, and telecom applications. The consortium's operations include an EEMBC Technology Center that provides a full range of benchmarking and benchmark score certification services in addition to serving as EEMBC's R&D center for benchmark software development.

EEMBC's members include AMD, Analog Devices, ARC International, ARM, Broadcom, Cavium Networks, Centaur Technology , CEVA, Code Sourcery, Cypress Semiconductor, esmertec, Faraday, Freescale Semiconductor, Fujitsu Microelectronics, Green Hills Software, Huawei Technologies Co, IAR Systems AB, IBM, Imagination Technologies, Improv Systems, Infineon Technologies, Intel, LSI, Marvell Semiconductor, Matsushita Electric Industrial, MediaTek, Mentor Graphics, Microchip Technology, MIPS Technologies, National Instruments, NEC Electronics, Netcleus Systems, Nokia, Nvidia, NXP Semiconductors, Oki Electric Industry Co, Open Kernel Labs, Qualcomm, Realtek Semiconductor, Red Hat, Renesas Technology, RMI, Samsung Electronics, Sony Computer Entertainment, ST Microelectronics, Tensilica, Texas Instruments, Toshiba, Trango Virtual Processors, and Wind River Systems.
