Denso division, NSITEXE, a company which designs and develops semiconductor IP cores, has acted as lead investor and taken a stake in start-up,

The purpose of the investment is to aid’s development of edge processing units (EPUs), which are semiconductors that could be used as a foundation for enabling automated driving technology.

Denso established NSITEXE in 2017 to design and develop next-generation, high-performance semiconductor devices to advance automated driving solutions.

One of NSITEXE’s focuses is developing a Data Flow Processor (DFP), a new type of processor different from conventional processors such as central processing units (CPUs) and graphic processing units (GPUs).

The DFP can rapidly perform multiple complex calculations by instantaneously optimising calculating areas according to the amount and content of information, while minimising power consumption and heat generation. NSITEXE is aiming to commercialise the DFP in the first half of the 2020s.

NSITEXE has taken a stake in because of its industrial EPU development technology, which it will incorporate into in-vehicle specifications required for automated driving.
