DENSO Corp. and Toyota Motor Corp. recently agreed to establish a joint venture* for research and advanced development of next-generation, in-vehicle semiconductors. The two companies will study the details and aim to establish the new company in April 2020.

Recently, electronic controls have been increasingly implemented into vehicles. In addition, the number of in-vehicle semiconductors also has grown, and the performance of these semiconductors has continuously improved. To create a future of mobility that is safe and sustainable, it is necessary to develop next-generation semiconductors that are integral to technology innovations, such as connected cars, automated driving, sharing mobility and electrification.

In June 2018, DENSO and Toyota agreed to consolidate their electronic components production and development functions to DENSO. Based on this agreement, they have been working to achieve a speedy and competitive production and development system.

DENSO has decided to establish the new company for research and advanced development of in-vehicle semiconductors and will establish a stronger system for R&D of semiconductors. DENSO has agreed to accept equity participation from Toyota for the new company to accelerate the speed of development by taking full advantage of Toyota’s knowledge from a mobility viewpoint. Through equity participation in the new company, Toyota will achieve further technology innovations by introducing cutting-edge semiconductor technologies from the planning phase when developing its mobility services and vehicles.

The new company will conduct advanced research on the basic structure and processing method of next-generation semiconductors and develop electronic components by implementing semiconductors, such as power modules for electric vehicles and periphery monitoring sensors for automated vehicles, thereby contributing to creating the future of mobility.

* The establishment of the joint venture requires the approval of antitrust authorities.
