Also develops British processing cores ARM Announces Freeze on Relations with Chinese Manufacturer - While In the Background There are estimates of a future deal that will save the day
Is Huawei about to crash? The snowball created by the separation of powers between Google and the major Chinese manufacturer that entered the blacklists in the United States refuses to stop and drags derivative influences from companies and entities that are not based in America - and so it happens that the processing core ARM (Owned by Japan's SoftBank) announced a temporary suspension of cooperation with the company.
The vast majority of processors in modern smartphones are based on one or another of the cores in architecture ARM, With Huawei's Kirin family products (via its HiSilicon subsidiary) also based on its own Mali family cores ARM - And now the boycott means that the Chinese manufacturer will not be able to actually continue to acquire the rights to use the company's intellectual property, and will be forced to find a new direction in the development of future chips. This is a barrier and a challenge no less great than those brought with it by the boycott from home Google, And it seems that without a solution it may bring the Huawei In the long term to a situation in which it is unable to bring new devices into the market.
If this is not enough, the company's membership is also Huawei In the SD Association, Wi-Fi Alliance and JEDEC have been suspended for being based in the United States, which is something that will prevent the company from taking care of its personal interests in future version regulations for the common features on all smart devices out there - and may even prevent it from adopting the latest and most advanced standards.
The current situation seems bleak and even fatal for the manufacturer, despite years of attempts to reduce reliance on products from Western sources and move to independent development, but is there any hope for a rebound anyway? The president of the United States spoke on the issue and made it clear that the lifting of sanctions could take place As part of a new comprehensive trade agreement between China and the United States, Which has been a major bone of contention between the powers for several months and has caused considerable economic damage to factors on both sides (Huawei Is probably the largest of them).
Also Chinese ZTE Which was forced to freeze its activities fully last year Due to American sanctions, as I recall, she eventually gained forgiveness and forgiveness that allowed her to return to functioning with her Axon 10 Pro devices. However, there is no denying that the current crisis may have a major and long-term impact on Huawei's plans for the future - and we'm certainly not surprised to find that relations with Google And Android will no longer be the same again.
