Building the MiBench benchmark suite for PPC440FP

MiBench is a free, commercially representative embedded benchmark suite.

1. What you get after the build

You get binaries and data sets of the MiBench version 1 benchmark suite for Linux/PPC440FP.


  • A Linux host machine
  • A GNU cross tool-chain: follow the instructions here

2. Get the material

Download that tarball. It contains all the necessary material (scripts and source codes) to compile the MiBench benchmark suite for PPC440FP.

3. Uncompress the tarball

$ tar zxvf mibench-v1-source-v5.tar.gz

4. Build the benchmark suite

$ cd mibench-v1-source-v5
$ ./ --target=powerpc-440fp-linux-gnu --cross-compiler-prefix=${HOME}/crosstool-source-v4/powerpc-440fp-linux-gnu --target-simulator="${HOME}/unisim-virtex5fxt-1.0beta12/virtex/bin/unisim-virtex5fxt-wfpu-1.0beta12 -s enable-linux-os=1" all

Adjust the arguments of the building script to your cross tool-chain installation.

Virtual Platforms



We would like to thank Digiteo that supported us in making the UNISIM virtual platforms available to the community.


We presented a poster at the poster sessions of the HiPEAC'12 conference, January 23-25, 2012, Paris, France. The HiPEAC conference provides a forum for experts in computer architecture, programming models, compilers, and operating systems for embedded and general-purpose systems. The conference aims at the dissemination of advanced scientific knowledge and the promotion of international contacts among scientists from academia and industry.

On-going evaluation

A UNISIM virtual platform of a Xilinx Virtex-5 FXT is being evaluated by project partners in the context of OPEES (Open Platform for the Engineering of Embedded Systems), a European project that aims to ensure long-term availability of critical / embedded systems engineering technologies to secure industry competitiveness and development.
