In this paper, we present a detailed analysis of the MediaBench benchmark suite. MediaBench consists of a number of popular embedded applications for communications and multimedia. MediaBench performance characteristics were examined by running MediaBench under the SimpleScalar simulation environment. Characteristics such as instruction mix, branch prediction accuracy, cache hit rates, memory usage, and integer bit utilization were considered. This information can be of use in designing embedded systems targeted at multimedia applications.
