Not long ago, Huawei officially released Hongmeng 2.0. This news is indeed very proud, but we cannot ignore that Huawei is currently facing one of the biggest problems — -Chip puzzle. As September 15 gets closer and closer, many companies, including Samsung, Hynix, and LG, have announced that they will stop supplying Huawei. This means that what Huawei lacks is more than just mobile phone processors!
With so many restrictions, it seems that even Huawei is powerless. After all, no matter how powerful Huawei is, it is only a private enterprise, and it is impossible to complete all the upstream and downstream production of the industrial chain in one fell swoop. So has Huawei really reached a dead end? But at a critical moment, Trump introduced a new ban, which instead had a positive effect on Huawei.
According to Reuters, Trump is preparing to include SMIC on the trade blacklist, while the Pentagon proposes to simply include SMIC on the”entity list.” After learning of this news, SMIC immediately stated that it had not violated international trade rules, and was willing to communicate with relevant US government departments in a sincere, open and transparent manner to resolve possible differences. And misunderstanding.
SMIC’s instant”softness” has made many netizens angry, but the lithography machine is still firmly controlled by the West, and SMIC is also helpless. However, the United States seems to regret this new ban. The US media commented sharply on this:Once Trump’s ban is implemented, it will force SMIC to completely separate from American technology and vigorously develop its own chip production process. This short-term It will cause harm internally, but in the long run it will force itself a strong opponent; and once ZTE can produce high-end chips independently, the ban facing Huawei will also be solved, he (Trump) It’s really helping Huawei!
What’s more, our country is vigorously promoting the development of the semiconductor industry. This time the country directly prepared 10 trillion yuan to boost the development of domestic chips. James Lewis, a senior U.S. think tank official, is very worried. He said:”In terms of investment in the semiconductor (industry), China’s expenditure may far exceed ours by 1,000 to 1. This ratio makes it impossible for the United States to win this competition. .”
