U.S. chipmaker, Intel has received licenses from the U.S. government to continue to supply some products to Huawei, which confirms a report from Reuters.
In May 2019, the U.S. added Huawei in the Entity-List and restricted the company from doing business with American companies as well as purchasing the U.S. made technologies including the chipset.
Following the Entity List announcement, Intel got permission to sell its chipset to Huawei and continue to do so. However, the chipset curbs posted recently bars every chip maker from supplying to Huawei.
South Korea’s SK Hynix also applied for U.S. licenses to supply memory semiconductor for Huawei. Another chipset maker, MediaTek said to apply for a U.S. government license.
