MobileBench develops and standardizes evaluation tools for the mobile
As telecommunication networks evolve, mobile applications are being pressed to provide users with faster next-generation interfaces, based on clear environmental guidelines and industry parameters. MobileBench will provide mobile platform designers with more useful solutions based on speedy time-to-market analysis, and consumers with more reliable indices for better assessing the user experience. Setting impartial test guidelines and embracing more sophisticated evaluation methodology, the consortium believes its tools will be widely adopted by mobile device designers and engineers, to the benefit of OEMs and consumers alike.
The consortium, which is actively seeking new members, currently has five board members: Broadcom, Huawei, OPPO, Samsung and Spreadtrum. It held its inaugural meeting in
The consortium’s first benchmark tool, MobileBench, is a comprehensive program designed for engineers and system designers, and was publicly demonstrated for the first time at the event. It is a performance assessment tool that expands mobile testing from simply assessing individual components and other conventional factors to include more sophisticated test focuses such as video/image file viewing, video filming, and other specific mobile modes and services to which users can clearly relate.
MobileBench evaluates hardware components. It consists of a mobile device, including core elements such as application processors, popular memory solutions, embedded storage (eMMC) and graphics memory chips. Besides analyzing these basic test areas, engineers can set up detailed parameters such as repetition and intervals, with each test result being monitored in real-time, allowing usage pattern and system status analyses. MobileBench-UX is designed for evaluating user centric applications such as switching among different apps, video shooting and viewing, and phone camera operations. Test results are immediate.
“With the cooperation of the mobile industry at large, the
“The MobileBench Consortium will make significant inroads in providing objective ways to evaluate a mobile device’s performance in the real world. Together with other industry leaders, we will standardize many of the core benchmarking tools that developers and engineers use, as we accelerate innovation in the development of mobile applications.”
