ADVISORY, May 2, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

WHAT:  Scott Phillips, Senior Manager, flash product marketing for STEC, Inc., will present a tutorial at ESC Silicon Valley titled, "Choosing the Right Solid-State Storage for Next-Generation Embedded Platforms."

WHEN:  May 4th, 2011 at 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. PT

WHERE:  ESC Silicon Valley, McEnery Convention Center, San Jose, CA

The Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) is one of the global electronics industry's leading events. With cutting edge product demonstrations, visionary speeches and hundreds of essential technical training classes and accreditation opportunities, ESC presents an ideal venue for the design engineering community to learn, collaborate and recognize excellence.

WHY:  To simplify storage decisions around space, weight and power (SWaP), STEC will deliver a comparative analysis of the various embedded solid-state drive (SSD) options available, and provide insight into key design considerations, such as how to satisfy storage requirements as the processor, core logic, display and communications consume more of the power budget.

INTERVIEW OPPORTUNITY: For more information regarding STEC and the embedded storage space, Mr. Phillips is available for press and embedded industry analyst briefings following the conclusion of the presentation. To schedule a briefing please contact Michael Bingham at pr@stec-inc.com.
