Huawei continues to be "hit"; it could knock the company out of the national 5G network infrastructure

Huawei continues to be the focus of the U.S. Department of Commerce's changing export rules, putting control of chip factories in the hands of President Donald Trump.

The new rule allows the United States to require any manufacturing plant in the world to produce chips using U.S. technology, which requires a license from the Commerce Department before delivering orders to Huawei.

The new rule is a blow to Huawei and its main chip supplier - TSMC. TSMC is the world's largest semiconductor chip factory with two customers, Apple and Huawei.

This year, TSMC is delivering to our customers the largest upgraded chip model ever; Semiconductors made on the 5nm process will allow up to 171.3 million transistors per square millimeter. This figure soared from 96.5 million balls per 1 mm square on 7nm chip models like the Apple A13 Bionic and Qualcomm Snapdragon 865.

Besides being the second largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, Huawei is also the largest supplier of network equipment globally. The United States has warned allies not to use electronics company network equipment from China to build the national 5G infrastructure.

While only Japan and Australia pay attention to warnings, Germany and the UK did not. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson made a speech in January on this issue, feeling that there was no other alternative than Huawei and decided to allow the company to build a 5G network in the UK but limited. .

After all, Huawei's technology is said to go beyond 12 to 18 months compared to rivals, while supporting many "generous" financial terms for customers. However, the Financial Times reported that members of the British Conservative Party have asked to remove Huawei's technology from the country's 5G network and the rest of the telecommunications infrastructure by 2023 because for many concerns about national security.

Both the United States and the United Kingdom share a common concern that Huawei's relationships with the Chinese government have led to the installation of "backdoors" in its products and network equipment.

The "backdoors" are supposed to collect personal information from users and customer companies to send to servers located in Beijing, although Huawei has repeatedly denied this information.
