Berkeley Design Technology, Inc. (BDTI) welcomes leading processor vendors as charter members of BDTI Benchmark Partner Program(SM).
Jeff Bier, noted DSP technology analyst and general manager of BDTI, welcomed the four charter members, saying, "BDTI is pleased to have these industry-leading vendors as charter members of the BDTI Benchmark Partner Program. Our initial Benchmark Partners have employed the BDTI Benchmarks for multiple generations of processors, demonstrating their willingness to provide rigorous, independently certified performance data to their customers and the industry. That these companies have consistently chosen the BDTI Benchmarks as their preferred tool for digital signal processing performance measurement underscores the reliability and integrity of these benchmarks, which BDTI has refined over the last 10 years."
Membership in the BDTI Benchmark Partner Program is free to qualified licensees of the BDTI Benchmarks. Benefits include the right to use the BDTI Benchmark Partner Program logo in print and online product marketing materials, and support for development of marketing information that uses BDTI Benchmark results.
The BDTI Benchmark suite is a unique, vendor-independent tool that enables meaningful comparisons between processors used in digital signal processing applications. The suite of twelve algorithm kernel benchmarks represents key operations found in digital signal processing applications used in fields such as telecom and audio. Since its introduction in 1994, the BDTI Benchmark suite has become the most widely used set of benchmarks for digital signal processing, applied to more than 70 processor architectures. BDTI Benchmark results provide systems designers and equipment manufacturers with an unparalleled body of information for use in selecting a processor for an application. For processor designers, the results provide valuable direction in designing new processors.
The BDTI Processor Evaluation Methodology is a rigorous means of evaluating the suitability of processors for DSP tasks. The methodology includes the widely accepted BDTI Benchmarks as well as expert evaluation of processor attributes, and provides the basis for BDTI's highly regarded technology reports.
