Abstract [en]

Choosing a right processor for an embedded application, or designing a new pro-cessor requires us to know how it stacks up against the competition, or sellinga processor requires a credible communication about its performance to the cus-tomers, which means benchmarking of a processor is very important. They arerecognized world wide by processor vendors and customers alike as the fact-basedway to evaluate and communicate embedded processor performance. In this the-sis, the benchmarking of ePUMA multiprocessor developed by the Division ofComputer Engineering, ISY, Linköping University, Sweden will be described indetails. A number of typical digital signal processing algorithms are chosen asbenchmarks. These benchmarks have been implemented in assembly code withtheir performance measured in terms of clock cycles and root mean square errorwhen compared with result computed using double precision. The ePUMA multi-processor platform which comprises of the Sleipnir DSP processor and Senior DSPprocessor was used to implement the DSP algorithms. Matlab inbuilt models wereused as reference to compare with the assembly implementation to derive the rootmean square error values of different algorithms. The execution time for differentDSP algorithms ranged from 51 to 6148 clock cycles and the root mean squareerror values varies between 0.0003 to 0.11.
