U.S. is confused over Honor – Ban or Not
After banning Huawei, the U.S. government is now aiming at Honor. The US agencies have recently conducted a meeting to discuss whether to add the former subsidiary of Huawei to the US entity list or not. The meeting seems to soon turn into an argument due to the lack of agreement among the members.
A report from The Washington Post reveals, there are apparently four security organizations that are presenting their perspective on this matter. The Pentagon and Energy Department wants the authorities to black-listed Honor in the market. Meanwhile, the Commerce Department and State Department are strictly against this vote.
In 2019, the Trump administration banned Huawei in suspicion of being a security threat to the nation. Afterward, the US companies withdrew their supply and left Huawei to struggle alone. However, taking it as an opportunity the company started to polish its technologies and making its own empire. Still, there is a long way to cover.
On the other hand, the Chinese firm never accepted the false blame and always opposes them. Furthermore, the Huawei authorities claim all the charges of the US Federal Ministry groundless.
Last December, Huawei sold its subsidiary to a group of Chinese businesses. Thereafter, Honor regained its supply chain including chipsets, Google Mobile Services as well as other partnerships with global tech makers.
Why the US wants to Blacklist Honor:
There is no clear statement why the US wants to ban Honor. The company is no longer part of Huawei and become an independent firm last year. Moving ahead, it doesn’t have a strong position in 5G networking devices manufacturing, which causes any security threat in the country and causes a ban like it did with Huawei.
However, if the company is anyhow banned in the US, it’ll surely bring devastating outcomes. It might lead the owners to give up on the company as it’ll directly cut the supplies from the biggest market. But first, the US has to clear its confusion to ban Honor or not. If yes, then why?
Chip makers to boost 5G RF component production, could help Huawei to bring back 5G phones
The 5G RF (radio frequency) components are a big concern for Huawei as it’s forced to launch its flagship with 4G network access. Launched on July 29 this year, the Huawei P50 series packs a sumptuous camera system, software capabilities, and design. However, the smartphone lacks a 5G communication network.
As reported previously, core 5G components use radiofrequency waves divided into Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) and Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW). Among them, the smartphone makers prefer BAW, whose market is mainly ruled by US chipmakers that are restricted to sell 5G chips to Huawei due to US-Sanctions.
Furthermore, a recent report shows that like other markets, the chip industry has its own working flow. It includes manufactories, packaging, and testing plants to supply 5G RF components. Now the chip foundries are working to expand their business relations and planed of producing more 5G smartphone chips. The positive side of this news is that Huawei could also get access to 5G RF components to bring its 5G smartphones.
Chip Market Status in China:
According to the report, Vanchip Technologies which is a sub-foundry of MediaTek is seeking to work with GaAs. The two parties are accelerating their production to meet the 5G demands across the mainland.
Moving ahead, Qualcomm also contacted Wenmao that will responsible for G sub-6GHz power amplifier (PA). Adding to this, another Chinese supplier Hongjie Technology will provide Qualcomm the advanced 6-inch wafers.
In this line, Qualcomm also extending the RF collaboration on 5G RF front-end products with GlobalFoundries (GF). The collaboration includes sub-6 GHz and cutting-edge mmWave technology to unlock everyday 5G access.
Global Chip Market Status:
The United States and Japan are monopolizing the global chip market at present. The fabless manufacturers including Qualcomm, Qorvo, and Skyworks are planning to work together.
Besides, the other manufactures such as ASE, Amkor, and Changjiang Electronics Technology have ramp-up system-in-package (SiP) and antenna packaging (AiP) integration in their products.
