Silicon Labs To Collaborate In Development Of EEMBC Ultra-Low Power Microcontroller Benchmark

EL DORADO HILLS, Calif., Jan. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) today announced that Silicon Laboratories Inc. (Nasdaq: SLAB), a leader in high-performance, analog-intensive, mixed-signal ICs, has joined the consortium's working group developing a benchmark for ultra-low power microcontrollers (MCUs). This working group is a subset of the EEMBC Automotive/Industrial subcommittee, which is also developing benchmarks that target low-power automotive applications. Silicon Labs' membership in EEMBC will allow the company to use these benchmarks, as well as EEMBC CoreMark®, to validate and publicize the performance of its ultra-low-power mixed-signal microcontroller products.

EEMBC was formed in 1997 to develop meaningful performance benchmarks for the hardware and software used in embedded systems. EEMBC benchmarks help ensure predictable performance of embedded processors and systems in a range of applications and disciplines. In addition to the benchmarks currently in development, the Automotive/Industrial subcommittee supports the industry-standard benchmark suite called AutoBench, currently in use within thousands of companies and universities worldwide.

"Silicon Labs has established itself as an innovator in ultra-low-power 32-bit microcontroller technology with its Precision32 mixed-signal MCU family based on ARM Cortex-M3 processor," said Markus Levy, EEMBC President. "Silicon Labs is a valuable addition to the EEMBC ultra-low-power MCU working group, offering expertise in a variety of energy-saving techniques, architectures and tools that enable developers to optimize their power-sensitive embedded designs."

"We look forward to helping the EEMBC working group develop a new benchmark that will advance chip- and system-level energy efficiency for the embedded industry," said Diwakar Vishakhadatta, vice president and general manager of Silicon Labs' Embedded Systems business. "The path to ultra-low power begins with MCU architectural innovation, and the next critical step is to provide developers with sophisticated software tools and benchmarks that will enable them to achieve unprecedented power savings."
