DENSO Corporation announced that NSITEXE a DENSO group company acted as lead investor and has taken a stake in quadric.io.

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

NSITEXE has taken a stake in quadric.io because of its industrial EPU development technology, which it will incorporate into in-vehicle specifications required for automated driving. The quadric.io’s real-time end-to-end edge computing technology was designed to accelerate the development of smart edge products like cars and robots that require instantaneous processing of a large amount of calculations while minimizing power consumption and latency.

NSITEXE aims to achieve instant processing of both complex and large amounts of calculations to extend the ability of Data Flow Processor (DFP) by accelerating development of quadric.io’s real-time end-to-end edge computing technology.

NSITEXE is aiming to commercialize the DFP in the first half of the 2020.
