A new blow to Huawei, which is trying to face the restrictions imposed by the USA, came this time from its homeland. According to new developments, TSMC decided to stop all work. Thus, after Kirin, TSMC processor production was also stuck in the embargo.
TSMC halts all Huawei orders
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd halted new orders from Huawei Technologies in response to Washington’s move to further limit the supply of processors to the Chinese company.
According to the report, the orders ordered by TSMC before the new ban and currently in production are not affected by this decision. These processors need to be delivered before September.
TSMC, the world’s largest contract chip manufacturer and an important Huawei supplier, was announced plans to build a US-based facility on Thursday. TSMC subsequently announced that it “closely followed the US export rule change”.
The new rule, announced by the U.S. Department of Commerce on Friday, has expanded its attempt to halt exports to the world’s No. 2 smartphone manufacturer by expanding semiconductors manufactured abroad with US technology to demand a sales license to Huawei.
Huawei refused to comment on this issue, saying TSMC will not disclose processor production details, saying it uses its right to privacy.
