ARM Allegedly Cuts Ties With Huawei, Making Matters Worse for Chinese Smartphone Maker

In between the US-China trade war, Huawei has taken a lot of damage in the last few days and just as we thought things couldn’t get worse for Huawei, ARM throws a bombshell. BBC has reported that ARM – the chip manufacturing company has suspended its business with Huawei putting its Kirin processor lineup at risk.

In BBC‘s words – ARM instructed employees to halt “all active contracts, support entitlements, and any pending engagements” with Huawei and its subsidiaries to comply with a recent US trade clampdown.

ARM’s company memo allegedly stated that the design contained “USorigin technology”. If this is true, Huawei is in a lot of trouble. To put things in perspective, almost every cell phone uses ARM-based technology in some way. The company will not only be locked out of Google’s software ecosystem but also lose the ability to develop its own ARM-based chips.

So far, both the companies have declined to comment on this development, However, according to the latest developments, HiSilicon – Huawei’s Kirin processor division has been secretly developing products to reduce dependency on US firms. The company has also been stockpiling components for this eventuality. Huawei aims to become self-sufficient.
