Abstract

Researchers in embedded and reconfigurable computing are often hindered by a lack of suitable benchmarks with which to accurately evaluate their work. Without a suitable benchmark suite, researchers use either outdated, unrealistic benchmarks or spend valuable time creating their own. In this paper, we present ERCBench - a freely-available, open-source benchmark suite geared towards embedded and reconfigurable computing research. ERCBench benchmarks represent a variety of application areas, including multimedia processing, wireless communications, and cryptography. They consist of synthesizable Verilog models for hardware accelerators and hybrid hardware/software applications that combine software-based control flow with hardware-based computation tasks.
