US chipmakers will not supply Huawei with chips

Bloomberg's reports that the above-mentioned chip designers and suppliers are cutting off the supply of their chips to Huawei, effective immediately.

The news comes right after the 
ban against Huawei using Google's Android OS to power their phones.

Bloomberg also reported that the employees of Intel, Qualcomm, Broadcom, and Xilinx have told their employees they will not supply Huawei till further notice.

Fortunately, Huawei has their own in-house processor and modems. In fact, Huawei's Balong 5000 5G modem is said to be ahead of the competition by at least 1 year. Huawei's HiSilicon Kirin 980 is also one of the world's first 7nm mobile chip.

However, Huawei's notebooks are still reliant to Intel chips for now. But, they are prepared for the worst.

Reportedly, the company has chip stockpiles from its suppliers for three months. It should be enough to tell if it is just another scare tactic from the US government.
