120 million chips? Lianfa branch is unprepared and has applied to continue supplying goods to Huawei

In 2003, “Shanzhai machine” began to be popular in China’s mobile phone market. The peak period of “Shanzhai machine” was in 2008 and 2009. In these two years, the shipment volume of “Shanzhai machine” in China’s market was 100 million and 140 million. < / P > < p > when it comes to “fake machines”, we have to say that Lianfa branch, the enterprise behind this, provides a complete set of solutions including mobile phone chips for these “fake machines”. To put it simply, Lianfa branch has solved all the software and hardware problems needed for mobile phones. It only needs businesses to assemble them, and then paste their own logo to sell them as a new brand on the market. < / P > < p > it’s just that the competition is cruel. At that time, MediaTek was preparing to enter the high-end chip market from the low-end chip, while Qualcomm was preparing to harvest the low-end chip market from the high-end chip. In the end, in the face of a narrow road, Qualcomm won a great victory, and MediaTek was in a slump. < / P > < p > originally, the United States blocked Huawei chips recently and banned American technology companies from cooperating with Huawei. Then, MediaTek will become the biggest winner. It is said that it has even obtained orders for more than 150 million Huawei chips. However, on August 17, the United States suddenly expanded the scope of the order, which caught MediaTek by surprise. 120 million chips may be in vain. < p > < p > on August 17, the United States announced the expansion of the scope of the order. On August 18, the United States Development Branch made a response. At that time, the United States Development Branch responded as follows: “it is closely following the changes in the US export control rules, consulting external legal advisers, obtaining the latest provisions in real time for legal analysis, so as to ensure the compliance of relevant rules. According to the assessment of the existing information, there is no significant impact on the short-term operation of the company. ” < / P > < p > Please note that the last sentence has no significant impact on the short-term operation of the company. However, in recent days, the evaluation results seem to come out, and MediaTek may not be able to sell chips to Huawei. To this end, according to relevant media reports, MediaTek has shown its final “stubbornness”: it has applied to the US side and strives to continue supplying goods to Huawei after September 15. < / P > < p > according to Sina Technology, MediaTek has confirmed a rumor that MediaTek has applied to the US side in accordance with the regulations, striving to continue to supply goods to China after September 15. Why apply? It shows that the joint development branch is really within the limits. < / P > < p > it’s a good thing that MediaTek wants to supply Huawei, but it’s not optimistic about the supply application submitted by MediaTek to the U.S. either inside or outside the industry. It should be noted that TSMC has already applied for it for a long time, and Qualcomm also applied for it in June. But in return for what? In exchange for a more stringent ban escalation. Therefore, there is a reason why the supply application of Lianfa branch is not optimistic. < / P > < p > in fact, from the global semiconductor market, almost no semiconductor company is completely separated from the U.S. technology. Take chip design companies like MediaTek for example, most of the software tools needed to design chips come from American companies, let alone other smaller companies. In view of this, Huawei can only rely on its own Kirin series chips in the field of chip design. Similarly, Huawei can only rely on the same type of domestic enterprises in the field of chip manufacturing. Now that things have come to this point, do you understand how harmful the comprador doctrine of “building is better than buying, and buying is better than renting” is? < p > < p > fortunately, at present, the country has taken the initiative, not only officially listed the integrated circuit industry as a national first-class discipline, but also issued indicators in relevant documents, requiring to achieve a chip self-sufficiency rate of 70% within five years. I believe that with the support of the state, the whole Chinese semiconductor industry chain will be able to solve the problem of lack of “core” as soon as possible!
