BDTI Success Story: Selecting a Processor Using BDTI Benchmarks

A top-10 wireless equipment manufacturer was preparing to develop a new baseband chip for next-generation wireless terminals.

The company had narrowed its options to four DSP processor architectures from two vendors. Under intense time pressure to finalize the processor selection and begin design work, the company’s senior engineers needed reliable, apples-to-apples performance data—and they needed it fast.

Fortunately, BDTI DSP Kernel Benchmarks™ results were available for all four processors. The equipment company’s engineers created a model of their application’s processing workload by applying weighting factors to each of the twelve individual benchmarks in the BDTI suite.

Bottom line? They were able to create an accurate performance comparison of the four candidate processors in a matter of weeks—and make their processor-selection decision quickly, with confidence.
