The United States Government has added the Chinese tech giant, Huawei into its Entity List. Right after Google blocks its access to Huawei, other major tech companies such as Intel and Qualcomm have banned Huawei from using their chipsets.
Based on the report from Bloomberg, these companies start to inform all their employees to stop supplying chipsets to Huawei. Other than these two tech giant companies, other US chipmakers companies such as Broadcom and Xilinx has ban Huawei from using their chips in Huawei devices.
As for now, there are few other Huawei smartphones which are powered by the Qualcomm chips. For Intel chipsets, none of the Huawei smartphones is equipped with it. However, Intel is supplying its processors for Huawei’s servers and notebooks. The new Huawei MateBook X Pro is also powered by Intel’s 8th Gen processor. Now, Huawei has to find a contingency plan to create its own processor for its servers and notebooks too.
In conclusion, Huawei has enough chip supplies to continue until three months. We might not know yet what could probably happen after these three months. Do you think the US government will lift the ban from Huawei? More updates coming to you.
