Abstract/Description: Mobile platforms have become ubiquitous in our society; however, classical benchmarks have not kept up with their growth. When not entirely incompatible, current benchmarking techniques often provide very little useful information about these systems. Herein is proposed an open-source framework, based on existing technologies, for constructing new benchmarks targeting the Android operating system, the current leading mobile platform. This framework is used to construct several micro-benchmark kernels, in both Java and native C/C++, as well as to demonstrate the conversion of existing open-source applications into relevant mobile benchmarks, useful for architectural research. We provide profiles for each benchmark. In addition, a method is proposed for leveraging the speed of the Android emulator to assist in benchmark development on architectural simulators. Finally, in an effort to provide a stable development environment and promote the use of the framework, a virtual machine including all open-source materials is made available.
