This is a getting started guide for obtaining the ULPMark™-CP score using the Embedded Microprocessor Benchmark Consortium (EEMBC) ULPBench™ and EnergyMonitor with the MSP432P401R microcontroller (MCU). This document uses the MSP‑EXP432P401R LaunchPad™ development kit as the target evaluation module (EVM) for performing the benchmark. ULPBench is an EEMBC benchmark that provides an industry-standard method to measure the ultra-low-power capabilities of MCUs. The ULPBench firmware can be downloaded from the EEMBC website.
