This is a getting started guide for obtaining the ULPMarkā„¢-CP score using the Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) ULPBench and EnergyMonitor with the MSP430FR5969 microcontroller (MCU). This document uses the MSP-EXP430FR5969 LaunchPad development kit as the target evaluation module (EVM) for performing the benchmark. ULPBench is a EEMBC benchmark providing an industry-standard method to measure ultra-low-power capabilities of MCUs.
