Embench™: A Modern Embedded Benchmark Suite

Dhrystone and Coremark have been the defacto standard microcontroller benchmark suites for the last thirty years, but these benchmarks no longer reflect the needs of modern embedded systems. Embench™ was explicitly designed to meet the requirements of modern connected embedded systems. The benchmarks are relevant, portable, and well implemented.


The Embench™ suite is free and open source software for you to use, share and extend.
