Seeing Huawei’s big order to MediaTek, Qualcomm couldn’t sit still and lobbied the US government

According to reports, now Qualcomm is lobbying the trump government to lift the restrictions on Huawei’s chip sales and allow it to sell chips to China. According to the company, the U.S. sanctions against Huawei will result in a $8 billion market ceding to overseas competitors outside of the company. These competitors are mainly MediaTek and Samsung. < p > < p > in May this year, the U.S. restricted its chip supply to Huawei, giving it a 120 day buffer period, which expired on September 15. On August 7, Yu Chengdong confirmed that Kirin chips would disappear after September 15, and the chips in stock would be carried on the mate 40, a new generation of Huawei mobile phone released next month, which would be the “last generation” of Huawei’s Kirin chips. < p > < p > after September 15, Huawei will not be able to obtain OEM chip products from OEM factories such as TSMC, Samsung, etc., so Huawei will increase its efforts to purchase chips. However, the restriction order of the United States obviously disrupts the business of Qualcomm. If Qualcomm is not allowed to sell chips to Huawei, this will have no impact on Huawei, but will greatly damage the performance of Qualcomm, and Huawei will turn to other high-tech companies After Huawei ordered 120 million chips from Huawei, MediaTek, for example, bought chips from its competitors. In the second quarter, MediaTek took the lead in the domestic chip market. < p > < p > in July this year, Qualcomm reached a settlement with Huawei on the patent issue. The company received $1.8 billion in compensation from Huawei, and the two companies signed a patent license agreement. Qualcomm also said that it was not willing to lose Huawei as a partner. If it could continue to cooperate with Huawei, it would help Qualcomm develop in new fields. After all, Huawei’s orders are large orders, which are settled in the unit of 100 million. Therefore, the loss of Huawei, a big customer, will be huge for Qualcomm. < / P > < p > chip is the cornerstone of high-tech, all high-tech fields in the future can not do without the chip. If the United States wants to get a priority in the field of science and technology, it is obviously against the principle of fair competition in the market to suppress the development of science and technology in other countries through peer repression. The globalization of science and technology has become an inevitable trend. If the United States wants to be the dominant one, it does not conform to the trend of historical development. Suppressing Huawei or even more Chinese science and technology enterprises will only damage the interests of its own local enterprises.
