Visteon Recognized by Ford Motor Company for High-Tech Excellence In Radio Reception

    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 radios.

    Visteon Corporation is a leading full-service supplier that delivers consumer-driven technology solutions to automotive manufacturers worldwide and through multiple channels within the global automotive aftermarket. Visteon has a global delivery system of more than 130 technical, manufacturing, sales, and service facilities located in 23 countries.
