Designs include ARM basis for most of the processors of mobile devices all over the world, and the company concerned of affected by the embargo imposed by the United States, said in an internal memo: if their designs contain technology of American origin, and as a result, they think they are affected by the Prohibition of the management of Trump.

The description of one of the analysts this step, if you become a long-term plan, as hit works Huawei can’t skip it, saying, ARM is the basis of chip designs phones Huawei smart, so they are an insurmountable obstacle for the Chinese company, and greatly affect their ability to develop the chip by the.

Adopts Huawei’s on the ARM in the design of the chip architecture to address its named Kirin, and paid for her license, and without licenses, it will not be possible for Huawei and its HiSilicon Semiconductor to continue to manufacture processors Kirin using the design of the ARM.

While manufacturers have, in other cases the designs the core processors, which describe how to arrange the transistors of the chip, but there is still a need to integrate these designs with other elements – such as memory, radios – to create what is referred to as a system on chip.

The company advised its employees to send a note to inform the staff of Huawei’s relevant that – because of the American decision – is no longer allowed to provide support or technical – whether it is software or code or other updates – or participate in the discussion of technical matters with Huawei, or any of the other entities.

While enjoying HiSilicon Huawei freely continue to use and manufacture the chips existing, the ban means they will not be able to resort to the company designed the chip to help in the development of the hardware components in the future.
