Denso acquires stake in Autosar expert
Automotive supplier Denso Corp. has taken a stake in PiNTeam Holding GmbH (Munich, Germany), a German startup company focusing on embedded software technology for automotive electronic control units (ECUs). With this equity stake, Denso will accelerate the development of basic software for such ECUs.

Vehicles are becoming increasingly reliant on complex, embedded software due to growing demands for vehicle performance, especially as new systems in advanced driver assistance system and electrification proliferate. The number of ECUs per vehicle has steadily risen, with high-end cars typically having more than 80 ECUs each. For this reason, in-vehicle electronic system control will need to be able to process larger quantities of more diverse data than at present. Highly reliable basic software will be required to coordinate many ECUs and control the entire vehicle.

In the partnership, Denso plans to combine its technologies related to in-vehicle electronic system control, as well as its expertise in mass production quality and precision, with PiNTeam’s advanced embedded software solutions that meet European standards. This will enable both companies to develop basic software from a global perspective, which will increase its effectiveness. PinTeam’s focus lies on Autosar software mainly for Infineon’s Aurix microcontrollers. Among its products is the KYOTO developer suite for the generation of software modules and the OMNIYA Analyzer, a tool that enables users to analyze the complexity of Autosar components.

Launched in 2013, PINTeam is headquartered in Munich with further sites in Düsseldorf (Germany) and Timisoara (Romania). The startup company provides development and integration services for automotive embedded software. The company’s technology spectrum reaches from low-level integration to Artificial Intelligence.
