Huawei Reportedly Set To Halt Manufacturing Of Kirin Chipsets

Huawei Says Flagship HiSilicon Kirin Smartphone Chips Running Out Under US Sanctions

But the Trump administration positioned Huawei and 114 of its affiliate marketers on its Entity Checklist in May possibly 2019, which intended USA corporations have been not able to offer technologies to the firm devoid of express USA governing administration acceptance. He admitted that Huawei has made huge R&D investments but when it comes to semiconductor, Huawei only did chip design but skipped on chip production.

Taiwanese chipmaker TSMC, a major supplier to Huawei, said last month that it plans to stop shipments of semiconductors to the Chinese firm in the future. This would give foreign companies a distinct advantage as the tech sector at large shifts to 5G technologies.

The production of Kirin chips designed by Huawei's engineers will stop September 15 as they are made by the contractors that need the United States manufacturing technology, according to Yu, adding that Huawei lacks the ability to make its own chips. TSMC has confirmed that it would not be able to supply Huawei in the future but it would still fulfil outstanding orders from the Chinese company.

Chinese tech giant Huawei will stop making its signature Kirin chipsets next month, as pressure from the USA on the company mounts. In a presentation it put together on the topic, Qualcomm says the ban will not stop Huawei from obtaining parts it needs to build and sell mobile devices, but it would result in billion of USA dollars being lost to rivals like MediaTek and Samsung, The Wall Street Journal reports.


Apple and Huawei manufacture their own chips and it is very budget-friendly to build your own processors. Thus, the Kirin's latest 9000 chips will be the last one to be produced, as high-end, and becoming to Mate 40 handsets.

Qualcomm Inc has been putting pressure on the Trump administration to allow it to sell components to Huawei Technologies Co, saying current restrictions risk channeling revenue to foreign competitors rather than preventing the Chinese company from obtaining the parts, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Earlier, Huawei announced that its global sales in the first half of this year rose 13.1 percent from a year earlier to 454 billion yuan (US$65 billion).

Back in May, the U.S. Commerce Department prohibited U.S. companies from becoming involved with Huawei without obtaining a license. That date is the same date when the U.S. ban on Huawei will start permanently.
