How to find out TOPS of an hardware?


I’m working on cortex-M4 microcontroller. How can i find the TOPS of this hardware to measure the performance? The manufacturer hasn’t mentioned anything about the TOPS in datasheet.

Please let me know if there is any tools or method that is used.


Hi @Abi_shake,

Most microcontrollers do not measure into the trillion operations per second, so you usually won’t see TOPS being listed as a performance measure. Instead, most manufacturers will publish some other metric, such as Dhrystone Million Instructions Per Second (DMIPS), CoreMark, etc. You can read about these metrics here: Understanding the Performance of Processor IP Cores - Codasip. Hope that helps!
