TSMC received permission to trade with Huawei
One of the strongest blows by the US government on Huawei was the ban on cooperation with American companies, as well as companies using American technology. The main problem in this is Huawei's inability to cooperate with TSMC, which for many years has been producing its top-end, and not only, mobile platforms for the Chinese giant.
As reported, TSMC, like many others, applied to the relevant US authorities in order to obtain permission to work with Huawei, and allegedly received it in the end. True, the permit implies the ability to sell to a Chinese company only products created using mature technologies. There is no decryption, but the source says that technological processes вЂњthickerвЂќ than 28 nm are now considered mature. Of course, such Huawei platforms are not required, that is, the permission, if it was actually issued by the TSCM, will not have any special impact on the business of the Chinese company.
