BARCELONA -- Seagate Technology(R) (NYSE:STX) will demonstrate its Storage Management Module(TM) (SMM(TM)) running on Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI's) OMAP(TM) applications processor platform at Seagate booth number 2.1B69 located in Hall 2, Level 1 during 3GSM.

Seagate's SMM is a software solution containing drivers, utilities and tools to provide hard drive support for a wide variety of chipsets. Seagate's SMM will clear technical obstacles for integrating hard drives into popular consumer electronic devices such as mobile phones, personal media players, IPTV set-top boxes, automotive devices and others. The software is designed to optimize hard drive-powered devices for efficient power consumption, better media recording and playback performance, and instant-on response.

"As mobile devices continue to provide increasingly rich multimedia experiences to the end user, rapidly escalating storage requirements demand innovative solutions that keep pace," said Avner Goren, marketing director of Texas Instruments Cellular Systems Solutions. "Seagate's SMM harnesses the raw capacity of hard disc drive (HDD) storage, while simultaneously catering to the power and performance needs of mobile platforms. The strong multimedia capabilities of the OMAP 3 platform such as HD video download/playback and DVD quality camcorder functions will be well served by Seagate's SMM, as will the current generation of OMAP 2 platform-based devices as demonstrated here in Barcelona."
