I sometimes wish that people who use my processor would notify me when they publish some useful results. I usually end up randomly stumbling over these results when I google for related information. One such result that I just recently uncovered was a benchmark of the AEMB, which would have proved extremely useful.
I have claimed that the AEMB is the world’s fastest and smallest 32-bit multi-threaded RISC processor. Chapter 2 of this thesis put it in terms of real numbers!
First, the author found that in terms of MHz versus LUT (resource consumption), it provided the best performance of the five RISC processor cores compared. Next, the author did some Dhrystone and Fibonacci software benchmarks and found the performance to be good too.
I’m happy that they managed to measure and show that the AEMB is a good processor.

hi shawn – unrelated comment, but you might find this interesting
Oh, that’s just cruel – forcing the kids to go through all that rigour in the name of education! 😀
Thanks for the link!
