Huawei is rumored to be losing chip talent and is expected to occupy the fourth largest mobile phone manufacturer in China next year

Chips are used in terminal products for the consumer market, including smart phones, tablet computers, wearable, smart home and even notebook computers. At present, Huawei Hisilicon semiconductor is fully capable of developing and designing various types of chips, covering low, medium and high-end. Among them, the well-known chips are Kirin series of smart phone application processor, Baron series of baseband chip, Tiangang series of base station chip, shengteng series of artificial intelligence chip, Kunpeng series of server chip, Lingxiao series of high-end router chip, etc. < / P > < p > on the one hand, Huawei has a strong chip R & D capability, which obviously helps to improve its competitiveness, and constantly introduces better products to the market. On the other hand, Huawei Hisilicon not only represents the “one pole” in the field of chip establishment in China, but also shows the ability and level of Chinese companies in the field of chip design. In fact, it is also greatly conducive to maintaining benign competition and more reasonable balance in the global semiconductor industry. However, the problem lies in the fact that the United States is not willing to do so. It also seeks various excuses and means to pursue Huawei in the chip field. Ren Zhengfei, founder and President of Huawei, recently said that the future technology world is full of unknowns, just like a lighthouse in the dark. Today’s global technology and economic prosperity is inseparable from the role of technology lighthouses in Britain, America, Japan and Russia. Huawei also wanted to light the 5g lighthouse, but as soon as the match was struck, a big stick from the United States knocked Huawei unconscious. At the beginning, Huawei also reflected on whether there was something wrong with its compliance system After fighting, we understand that some American politicians want us to die. “. < p > < p > on August 17, 2020, the Bureau of industry and security of the U.S. Department of Commerce announced that, unless there is a special license, any chips developed and produced based on American software or technology shall not be supplied to Huawei. Obviously, the United States intends to block Huawei’s purchase of chips from third parties. Moreover, the United States directly pointed out that “preventing Huawei from acquiring chips of the same level as that of the United States”. < p > < p > Huawei may not be able to obtain mobile phone parts after September 15. In addition to the existing inventory, Huawei will face the situation of no core available. Not only is it difficult for overseas chip suppliers to ship any more chips to Huawei, but also Chinese chip manufacturers have been forced to suspend shipment to Huawei. < p > < p > in the face of the ban on chip supply in the United States, Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business, responded, “we are trying to find a way.”. As for the time point when the Hongmeng operating system will be applied to mobile phones, Yu Chengdong said that the plan will not be released until next year. In the worst case, Huawei will withdraw directly from the mobile phone market, while Huawei’s commercial competitors, such as apple, oppo, vivo and Xiaomi, are expected to increase their market share to fill the market vacancy of Huawei. According to DIGITIMES forecast, Huawei’s share of China’s mobile phone market will shrink sharply to 16.3% in 2021, but it is still expected to occupy the position of the fourth largest mobile phone manufacturer in China. Vivo has the largest market share of 26.8%, followed by oppo with a market share of 24.3%; millet will also have a significant increase, reaching 17.5%. < / P > < p > in addition, as Huawei’s specifications of parts and the unit price given to suppliers are significantly higher than those of Android peers, once Huawei’s mobile phones shrink or withdraw from the market, the technological upgrading of the supply chain will slow down, and even bring a negative impact on the entire supply chain of the mobile phone industry. For example, BOE is investing heavily in the field of OLED panel, which needs big customers like Huawei to drive capacity improvement and technology upgrading. Moreover, in 2021, the mobile phone parts industry chain will face greater bargaining pressure. < / P > < p > finally, it is rumored that in Huawei Hisilicon, the proportion of employees staying on duty without pay is increasing, and Chinese domestic chip companies such as Alibaba and oppo are competing for Huawei employees. At a time when Huawei’s future is still uncertain, many chip design talents, especially those with excellent performance, choose to change jobs with high salary or to leave the company alone, which leads to the gradual loss of excellent talents. You know, for any chip design company, excellent talents are always the foundation for the company to win. American companies begin to give up R & D: who should pay for corporate research?
