America is targeting the Huawei chips unit to be the final blow

The U.S. government took more action against the Chinese company Huawei. This time, however, it specifically targets the HiSilicon chip development and production division, which has become an important player in the Chinese semiconductor industry ambitions. In a few years, it will now lose the use of aptitude tools. This is crucial to success.

It is believed that this decision may be the most harmful to Huawei so far. "It is the CPC's tool for strategic influence," US officials told reporters on Wednesday. Huawei condemned the US allegations and described the new measures as "arbitrary and malicious."

(Hi-Silicon) was mainly developed in 2004 to develop chips for Huawei. Huawei is lagging behind in the global chip space dominated by US, Korean and Japanese companies. Like most electronics companies, Huawei relies on chips from other companies to run its products.

However, the massive investment in research and development has helped to promote the rapid development of (high silicon). In recent years, the 7000 segment has been critical to Huawei's growth as the dominant player in the global smart phone market and the 5G telecom network market.

The performance of the HiSilicon Kirin smartphone processor is close to the products of companies such as Apple and Qualcomm. The processor is a rare example of Chinese semiconductor manufacturers who have made progress in global competition. (Hi Silicon) also plays a major role in bringing Huawei to the 5th generation market.

In March last year, Huawei announced that 8% of the 50,000 5G base stations sold in 2019 did not use American technology, but instead silicon chips chips instead of American components.

However, according to Reuters reports last week, the new US export control base was designed to prevent (Hi Silicon) from using two main tools: company chip design programs such as Cadence Design Systems, Synopsys and TSMC Taiwan for many countries around the world. The world's largest semiconductor company produces potato chips.

Analysts say that with the new restrictions, Hi-Silicon is no longer "making chips, and if that happens, it won't be noticed." If you do not have a processor you have done, Huawei will lose a large part of its share in the global market and Huawei will lose its advantage in the Chinese smartphone market after withdrawing Google services and applications.

According to industry reports: Huawei has a large number of chips, and the new US base will not be fully effective within 120 days. US officials have also indicated that specific technology licenses can be granted. Hi-Silicon can still use its design program.

But analysts agree that (Hi Silicon) is in a difficult situation. Nearly every chip manufacturer in the world, including Chinese companies, buy devices from some device manufacturers run by American companies, such as applied materials, Lam Research, and UCK.

For the new US base, companies that use American devices will need to get approval before making Huawei's shipping or shipping chips.
