This is surely a piece of big news for Huawei, the company has gained U.S. approval to purchase chipset for the automobile business. This would help the Chinese tech giant to further approach the field of smart car solutions and the company would really take benefit of this opportunity.
According to a report from Reuters, the U.S. has granted licenses authorizing suppliers to sell chipset to Huawei for such vehicle components as video screens and sensors. A person related to the matter revealed that automobile chips require less attention for license approval.
Currently, Huawei has denied replying on this matter but a spokesperson mentioned that the U.S. has gone too great to slow down the growth of its telecom business.
The spokesperson also said that Huawei is aiming to become and lead in the field of smart vehicles component provider and its aim is to help other car OEM (manufacturers ) build better vehicles.
U.S entity List:
In May 2019, Huawei was placed under the U.S. Entity List, which prohibits the company from purchasing the U.S.-made technologies including chipset for smartphones and for other business that requires such components to build new products.
Moreover, the company has to break its partnership with Google and stopped signing new phones with Google Mobile Services also known as GMS. Thereafter, the Chinese tech maker has to bring its own set of mobile services called – Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) and a new operating system – HarmonyOS.
Huawei has already increased its footsteps into the smart car business and working with major carmakers and industry partners. As mentioned above, the company is unraveling in the field of smart car solutions and is not interested in purchasing shares in any car maker.
Richard Barnett, chief marketing officer at a global electronics consultancy called Supply Frame, said Huawei is in the “early innings” of trying to invest in the $5 trillion automotive markets that have large potential growth both inside and outside of China.
“Cars and trucks are now computers on wheels,” said Barnett, “That convergence is what’s driving Huawei’s strategic focus to be a bigger player in that area.”
On August 24, Huawei announced cooperation with two Chinese companies – Changan Automobile and CATL. These three established a car brand – Avita and launched the first model – Avita E11.
The Avita E11 is equipped with solutions and hardware provided by the world’s leading intelligent electric networked vehicle architecture – CHN (Changan C, Huawei H, CATL N)
Under the Avita brand, all of these three partners will launch 5 models in the coming five years. These models will surely establish a good impression among auto consumers and will help the company to lead further into this industry.
Alibaba plans to launch 5nm Arm server chip to compete with Huawei and Amazon
Arm server technology is becoming a new trend of Server business due to its flexibility, small size, efficiency, and low price. In the coming time, it might take an important turn for server-based computing while replacing the X86 server processors.
Speaking of which, the current server market has many rulers with the leading technologies. However, the top place is acquired by Intel with 90% for the X86 process technologies. Although, Huawei’s Kunpeng Chips and Amazon’s AWS Graviton can be counted as new emerging leaders in the industry.
Now, recent reports show that the third biggest global provider of IaaS cloud- Alibaba is also planning to launch 5nm technology-based Arm server chip products. Afterward, it’ll count as another Chinese technology company to uses self-developed CPUs. Seems like, the service provider is preparing to compete with Huawei and Amazon.
Alibaba 5nm Arm chip:
According to the report, since 2019 Alibaba is researching the 5nm Arm chip processing technology with a complete exposition by the middle of 2021. The 128 cores and 5-nanometer processes technology has been used to reach the level of products from Huawei and Amazon.
In addition, at the Yunqi Conference, this Chinese cloud service provider recently informed that its most advanced server chip enters the manufacturing process. To be mention, Yunqi Conference is the yearly developer conference for Alibaba Cloud.
Furthermore, the next annual Yunqi Conference is scheduled for 19th October which will be held in Hangzhou China. In 2018, the company announced another chip-making subsidiary “Pingtou” which mainly manufactures end-to-end products such as Hanguang 800 chips.
Huawei ARM Servers:
The TaiShan ARM Servers of Huawei are the next-generation data center server-based on the Huawei Kunpeng processor. Meanwhile, the Kunpeng 920 processors are designed with multi-core computing architecture integrating superior computing technology.
This Shengzeng based firm mainly uses the 7nm technology with 64 2.6GHz core ARMv8 architecture to produce the ARM chips. Moreover, it mainly targets the requirements of diversified efficient computing power while preserving its security, and openness.

Autonomous driving lies between L2 and L3 in mobile network field: Huawei Wireless Network Chief
Huawei Wireless SingleOSS Product Line President, Ma Hongbo address the Global MBB forum with his speech. He presented five different viewpoints under his deliverance on “5Go S.M.A.R.T., Ushering Wireless Networks into the Intelligent and Autonomous Era”.
During the keynote deliverance, he emphasizes that network intelligence has been recognizing as the wireless autonomous driving network foundation. The network engines are preparing for the ability to self-learn and self-evolve with the help of enormous network data.
In addition, precise network algorithms and different approach models are also being prepared, escorting the network technology towards independent thinking. However, it’s still lacking a good synchronization between autonomous driving networks in mobile communications.
According to the Huawei president, the autonomous driving network current lies between L2 and L3 technology in the mobile network field. The industry needs joint efforts to bring both networks to the same level.
He further explains Huawei is willing to put more effort in terms of level criteria, evaluation systems, and application collaboration to established an autonomous driving network. the company holds serval projects and continually collaborating with operators and industry partners to create smart autonomous networks.
The industry reports show, industry and operators’ hierarchical recognition for driverless driving is becoming the center approach of operators. Furthermore, a recent white paper survey forecasts a positive image for future autonomous technologies.
According to the report, the analyzers surveyed about 42 independent network operators in the industry. Among them, about 80% are confident in their technologies and approaches for stationing fully autonomous driving networks that will a large-scale deployment within a decade.
To be mention, it was the 12th Global Mobile Broadband Forum, held in Dubai on the 13th of October. Its purpose is to bring the industrial leaders and global partners together to discuss the mobile network and adjacent vertical ecosystems.
