    EL DORADO HILLS, Calif., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The Embedded
 Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) today announced that RMI
 Corporation(TM) (RMI(R)), a supplier of processor-based solutions for
 enterprise, infrastructure, and consumer applications, is the consortium's
 newest member.
     RMI joins EEMBC as a member of the consortium's board of directors,
 with full voting rights on all major issues decided by the consortium, plus
 full access to all of the EEMBC benchmarks.
     "RMI's experience in multi-core technology and networking applications
 will help bring to EEMBC first-hand knowledge that will be invaluable for
 the testing of our series of multi-core processor benchmarks and
 next-generation networking and telecommunications benchmarks," said EEMBC
 President Markus Levy. "We are very pleased to welcome them as our 34th
 board member."
     "RMI produced the industry's first multi-core, multi-threaded SoC for
 high-performance, low-power embedded applications in 2004 and we have
 continued to build upon that success," said Nazar Zaidi, vice president of
 engineering for RMI Corporation. "We look forward to working with the EEMBC
 members and drawing upon our expertise to address the challenge of creating
 benchmarks for multi-core/multi-threaded SoC solutions. We are also
 leveraging our architectural expertise for extremely low-power consumer
 applications and plan to participate actively in this area as well."
