EEMBC, the Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium, has announced that Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) has become its newest member. SCEI joins EEMBC as a full 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(R) benchmarks.
"As the game division of Sony Corp. that is responsible for the PlayStation(R) game system and PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. has unsurpassed experience in embedded systems for consumer applications," said Markus Levy, EEMBC president. "We are looking forward to SCEI's participation as the consortium moves to update its consumer benchmark suite to include new benchmarks for MPEG-2, MPEG-4, and related applications."
EEMBC develops and certifies real-world benchmarks and benchmark scores to help designers select the right embedded processors for their systems. Every processor submitted for EEMBC(R) benchmarking is tested for parameters representing different workloads and capabilities in communications, networking, consumer, office automation, automotive/industrial, embedded Java, and microcontroller-related applications. Consortium members include leading semiconductor, intellectual property, and compiler companies.
