A few days ago, Wang Chenglu, the head of the Huawei Consumer Business Group head, also known as the “Father of HarmonyOS” transferred himself to another company. Now, former Huawei HiSilicon executives join MediaTek.

According to the reports, MediaTek has hired a former Huawei HiSilicon executive (executive director) to be in charge of chip research and development, mainly to enhance its ability to develop high-performance processors (HPC), servers, and base station chips, and custom ASICs. No specific ex-HiSilicon executive was mentioned.

Huawei HiSilicon is a chip designing subsidiary that is mainly known for its Kirin mobile chipset. However, after U.S. sanctions, the company has been not allowed to print new chipsets via the likes of TSMC, which has greatly affected the new Huawei smartphone production.
