Paper Abstract

The most usual performance evaluation for a CPU(Central Processing Unit) is the amount of time needed to execute a certain algorithm. In a similar way, this concept can be extended to microcontrollers. This paper presents an analysis of different CPU load algorithms executed on Microchip 8-bit microcontrollers. This analysis is based mainly on execution time measurements. Based on these details, original contributions to this paper are: the design of some CPU load algorithms, the developing of the software for the microcontrollers used in the experiments and the experimental results regarding the presented algorithms.
