Industry-Standard Benchmarks for Embedded Systems
EEMBC, an industry alliance, develops benchmarks to help system designers select the optimal processors and understand the performance and energy characteristics of their systems. EEMBC has benchmark suites targeting cloud and big data, mobile devices (for phones and tablets), networking, ultra-low power microcontrollers, the Internet of Things (IoT), digital media, automotive, and other application areas. EEMBC also has benchmarks for general-purpose performance analysis including CoreMark, MultiBench (multicore), and FPMark (floating-point).

Consortium Leadership

Peter Torelli
EEMBC President & CTO

Peter has a long history in the semiconductor industry, with over two decades at Intel as a software architect, hardware architect, and integration lead. His most significant contributions include driving power convergence for the Xeon Phi product line, and developing power-aware CAD tools and methodologies that have been used at Intel for over a decade.

In early 2014, Peter left Intel and jumped into the Portland-area startup scene, writing software and building hardware in such diverse areas as IoT wearables and fashion technology. After presenting at the IoT Developer Conference in 2015, Peter took the job as Director of Software Engineering at EEMBC, developing the IoTConnect framework: an extensible software architecture that both enables more sophisticated system analysis and forms the foundation for EEMBC's modern line of benchmarks.

Markus Levy
EEMBC Chairman of the Board

Markus Levy is Chairman of the Board of EEMBC, which he founded in April 1997. Mr. Levy is also president of the Multicore Association, which he co-founded in 2005.

In addition, Mr. Levy chairs the IoT Developers Conference. He was previously founder and chairman of the Multicore Developers Conference, a senior analyst at In-Stat/MDR, and an editor at EDN magazine, focusing in both roles on processors for the embedded industry.

Mr. Levy began his career in the semiconductor industry at Intel Corporation, where he served as both a senior applications engineer and customer training specialist for Intel's microprocessor and flash memory products. He is the co-author of Designing with Flash Memory, the one and only technical book on this subject, and received several patents while at Intel for his ideas related to flash memory architecture and usage as a disk drive alternative.
