We all know that the US sanctions are very punitive for Huawei, which until recently was the top smartphone maker. But it is not only in smartphones that the company is badly damaged, because in its telecommunications devices, especially 5G devices, the company has great difficulty in obtaining chips for its construction.
For this reason, Huawei intends to set up its own chip factory, which could be located in Shanghai. According to the Financial Times, initially, this factory without any American technology would manufacture 45nm chips at low prices. However, at the end of 2021, the company would start manufacturing 28nm chips for ‘Internet of Things’ devices, and by the end of 2022, chips in the 20nm process for 5G telecommunications equipment.
Huawei may soon open its own chip factory
Since Huawei has no chip manufacturing experience, it would hand over this delicate function to the Shanghai IC R&D Center, a research company backed by the city government.
And it all comes after the Chinese government said it was working on a path that will give them greater economic self-sufficiency, and that it has new plans, for five years, including that of building its own core technology. , stating that he can not trust to buy it from third parties.
For now, we can only wait for more news.
