Denso and Toyota Tsusho form joint venture

Denso Corporation and Toyota Tsusho Corporation have agreed to form a joint venture in Bangkok, Thailand. The new company, Toyota Tsusho Denso Electronics (Thailand) Co., plans to start developing software in July 2016 to help improve the efficiency of ECU development.

Recently, it has been challenging to improve efficiency when developing software used in engine ECUs because, as the control of powertrains becomes increasingly complex, the development scale expands accordingly. The joint venture will use models in all phases of software development including control-program development, design and verification.

Moreover, to be capable of supporting a wide variety of ECUs to be developed, the new company will standardize software and improve development efficiency and speed. The new company will be capitalized at 20m Bt (US$0.6m).
