New bans: US is going to tighten the loop even more on the neck of Huawei

It appears that despite the numerous delays and issuance of licenses to American partners, the US is still

did not abandon plans to cut off all oxygen to the Chinese company Huawei.

What does it mean

Reuters, citing several anonymoussources, writes that America plans to strengthen measures to impede the activities of Huawei. The administration of President Donald Trump is unhappy that the restrictions were introduced in May, but so far have not produced significant results and have not completely stopped supplies to Huawei.

For example, many American companies (Intel,Xilinx, Micron) continue cooperation with their Chinese partner. The head of Xilinx said back in the summer that the company's lawyers studied the government's requirements and came to the conclusion that older 28-nanometer chips and some chips not intended for 5G transmission could be legally sold to Huawei without a special license.

And now the United States wants to expand its powers and prohibit cooperation with Huawei by foreign suppliers who use American-made technologies or components in their products.

What could this lead to?

Washington lawyer Doug Jacobson believes thatthe new restrictions will be poorly received by US allies and US companies. As for Huawei itself, he predicts that such moves will disrupt supply chains, but that the company will eventually find other suppliers to fill the gaps.
