The Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC)
today announced that Tabula,
Inc., a leader in programmable devices for high-performance packet
processing applications, has joined the consortium's working group for
developing benchmarks targeting networking applications. Tabula's
membership in EEMBC will allow the company to utilize these benchmarks,
as well as serve as content experts in resolving the technical
challenges of creating new networking benchmarks.
EEMBC was formed in 1997 to develop meaningful performance benchmarks
for the hardware and software used in embedded systems. EEMBC benchmarks
help ensure predictable performance of embedded processors and systems
in a range of applications and disciplines. In addition to the
benchmarks currently in development, EEMBC's networking
benchmark still stands as a standard test used by thousands of
companies and universities worldwide.
"With Tabula's experience in pacet processing applications, the company
will be a valuable asset to our networking benchmark working group,"
said Markus Levy, EEMBC president. "Tabula will help us solve the
challenges of developing an unbiased, industry-standard benchmark that
examines important functions such as deep-packet-inspection (DPI)
throughput and open data-plane processing."
"New content has greatly expanded the bandwidth requirements to handle
the unparalleled amount of digital information. This situation has
created an urgent need for new chip architectures to keep pace, and in
turn, new benchmarks are needed to measure the capabilities of these new
chips," said Marc Miller, Tabula's senior director of Marketing. "As a
new member of EEMBC, we are very impressed with the methodology that
this benchmark organization has developed and maintained. We look
forward to contributing our resources to help ensure the continued
development and evolution of next-generation networking benchmarks. Our
customers will value the outcome of this effort when making decisions
about new system designs optimized for secure packet processing."
EEMBC, the Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium, is a non-profit
organization that develops industry-standard benchmarks to test embedded
processors and systems such as smart phones and network firewall
appliances. EEMBC's benchmark development work is supported by yearly
member dues and license fees. Further information is available at www.eembc.org.

Tabula is the industry's most innovative programmable logic solutions
provider, delivering breakthrough capabilities for today's most
challenging systems applications. The company's ABAX2 family
of general-purpose 3D programmable logic devices (3PLDs) based on
Tabula's patented Spacetime architecture and supported by its Stylus
compiler, sets a new benchmark for the capability of programmable
devices at volume price points, enabling re-programmability not only in
FPGA applications, but also in those historically served only by ASICs
or ASSPs. Headquartered in Santa Clara, California, Tabula has over 130
employees, and has assembled a leadership team consisting of industry
veterans and successful entrepreneurs. Tabula is backed by top-tier
investors with a long-term view toward enduring market leadership. For
