Global investment in 2022 has been majorly dominated by North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, whereas the Middle East, and South and Central America have recorded low investments comparatively.

Healthcare, Financial Services, Business & Consumer Services, and Construction sectors have also seen high investment activity by PE/VC firms, recording a deal value of over $70 billion each.   But what can this mean for you?   Understand how the Deals Database on GlobalData Explorer can be leveraged to:

Visteon will supply the domain controller with an integrated centre information display and thin-film transistor (TFT) instrument cluster display, for a high-line variant of a high-volume Dongfeng light vehicle scheduled for production starting in 2018.

It also will supply a reconfigurable instrument cluster and infotainment system for other variants of the vehicle.

Visteon claims to be the first supplier offering an automotive-grade, integrated domain controller approach that can independently operate the infotainment system, instrument cluster and potentially other features on one System on Chip (SoC).

This is Visteon's third contract for SmartCore which launches in 2018 with a European vehicle manufacturer. Earlier this year, Visteon announced a second deal, also with a European automaker, offering instrument cluster and infotainment features and expanding the platform to high end applications with a 3D display and augmented reality head up display capabilities.

"This latest business win with the second largest vehicle manufacturer in China further validates SmartCore as a viable solution to manage the increasing cost and complexity of in vehicle electronics," said Sachin Lawande, Visteon president and CEO. "[We are] well positioned to lead the consolidation of electronic control units in the cockpit space and we are in active dialogue with several more automakers in China and elsewhere around the world to adopt this technology in their vehicles."

SmartCore is designed to integrate infotainment, instrument clusters, information displays, head up displays, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and connectivity.
