In the first phase, dSPACE India will support the global software development of one of the world's leading providers of simulation and validation solutions with a pilot team of 25 highly-skilled professionals.

P Rajeeve, minister for industries, said the Thiruvananthapuram unit was dSPACE's first development centre in Asia, and the third centre after its centres in Germany and Croatia.

"dSPACE decided to select Thiruvananthapuram after visiting Bengaluru, Chennai and Pune," the minister said, in a social media post.

dSPACE further said it aims to rapidly expand and double the numbers by the end of the year.
