Dana acquires vehicle embedded software developer Pi Innovo

Powertrain manufacturer Dana has acquired Pi Innovo, a maker of embedded software solutions and electronic control units that support the light vehicle, commercial vehicle and off-highway markets. Dana previously held a non-controlling interest.

The acquisition of Pi Innovo enables Dana to increase its in-house electrodynamics capabilities and electrification product portfolio by adding a library of EV application software, vehicle level controllers and auxiliary controllers.

“The Pi Innovo team has provided exceptional modular software and controls solutions for OEMs for more than 25 years,” said Dana CEO James Kamsickas. “Integrating Pi Innovo with Dana’s e-Propulsion software capabilities will further enhance our ability to provide value for our customers as they continue to accelerate their EV portfolio development.”
