Dearborn, Mich. (ots-PRNewswire) - Visteon Corporation (NYSE: VC)
was honored with a prestigious Henry Ford Technology Award for the
development of its breakthrough digital radio technology called
MACH(R) DSP (Digital Signal Processing). Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F)
acknowledged Visteon's Telematics/Multimedia business system for its
work on MACH(R) DSP at an event held last night in Dearborn.
This digital tuner technology improves radio reception by
dramatically reducing interference -- one of the top 10 issues cited
by consumers when asked about their vehicle audio systems.
"We are very proud to be recognized by Ford for this revolutionary
digital radio technology," said Jim Wynalek, vice president and
general manager of Visteon's Telematics/Multimedia business system.
"Knowing that the improvement of radio reception in vehicles is one
of the top concerns for consumers, our goal was clear -- develop the
technology to meet their wants and needs."
In order to deliver the superior performance and value that
consumers want from their in-vehicle audio system, Visteon developed
a custom digital signal processing (DSP) Integrated Circuit (IC) for
AM, FM, and audio signals. This system brings AM/FM performance
closer to CD quality by using DSP technology to significantly reduce
interference of broadcast signals by up to 100 times compared to
existing radio technology. This revolutionary approach continuously
adjusts to the reception conditions, giving the listener the cleanest
overall audio signal -- particularly important in urban environments
where stations often interfere with one another. This technology can
be found on several 2000 model year Ford vehicles.
MACH(R) DSP is the first in the automotive industry to provide
this level of functionality and integration into a single IC. The
highly integrated design allows radios with this technology to use
fewer parts and have higher reliability without increasing the cost.
MACH(R) DSP also provides a wider AM channel, which results in AM
audio approaching FM fidelity, a feature not possible in conventional
