The dominoes continue to descend for Huawei in the wake of a trump-led U.S. vend ban. an internal memo from ARM lays out the chip giant’s preference to knocked
pause on “all active contracts, aid entitlements, and any pending engagements,” per the BBC.
While based in Cambridge, England, the company believes itself to be impacted by the vend issue due to its use of technology originating in the States. The move is just another indication of how complex the issue of extracting U.S.-based technology from these devices will ultimately be. If upheld, many believe it could ultimately doom Huawei.
Huawei offered TechCrunch a fairly quality response to the news, once again chalking things up to politics. “We value our close relationships with our partners, but recognize the pressure some of them are under, as a result of politically motivated decisions,” it wrote. “We are confident this regrettable situation can be resolved and our priority remains to continue to dispatch world-class technology and products to our customers around the world.”
Google was among the first to answer to Huawei’s inclusion on the U.S. Department of Commerce’s “Entity” vend blacklist, pulling aid for automaton. Other partners, including Microsoft, have remained largely silent on the matter.
