Visteon Corporation (Nasdaq: VC), a leading cockpit electronics technology supplier, has been awarded an Automotive News PACE Award for its industry-first cockpit domain controller platform, SmartCore™. The PACE Awards, announced April 9 in Detroit, honor innovation, technological advances and breakthrough processes developed by automotive suppliers.
SmartCore™ is the first cockpit domain controller platform to be launched in industry. Addressing the biggest trend in the cockpit electronics industry, it offers a solution to integrate the instrument cluster, infotainment system and other emerging technologies for the cockpit on a single system-on-chip (SOC). SmartCore™ helps deliver lower weight, cost and power consumption, which are increasingly important as the industry shifts toward electric powertrains. Launched this year with a global automaker based in Europe, SmartCore™ will be featured on several additional vehicle programs to be introduced over the next several years.
“Visteon is proud to be recognized with an Automotive News PACE Award,” said President and CEO Sachin Lawande. “SmartCore is a prime example of our dedication to technology innovation and leadership in automotive cockpit electronics.”
