Comment on Qualcomm will reportedly continue helping Huawei to skirt US sanctions with 5G-less chips by CashMcCall Wed, 29 Sep 2021 02:17:26 +0000 The idea of tech embargoes with China is a losing strategy. Ask the CEO of ASML. To fab chips in the past required a number of global suppliers for substrate materials, lithography etc. As I write, China is moving rapidly to self-sufficiency in 28 and 14nm with is more than ample to handle 5G kits.

Really talking about two things here… 5G networks and 5G phones. There is very little difference between a 4G and a 5G phone in overall performance. And 5G phones missed the whole point of what 5G really is. 5G is network capacity with massive collections of supercomputers and computational power. Anyone that thinks phone, a depreciating commodity is 5G is simply running on a Trump brain.

Roughly 80% of all China chip needs will be met with 28 and 14 nm chips. The narrow gated chips are limited to about 5% of the market. But China is the largest makers of smartphones. So if you want to block 5G narrow gated chips, Those makers will not see their chips being bought, they will remain on the shelf. Blocking chips is very short sighted and one of the reasons poor Intel missed out on the handheld market. It is also a reason Intel is moving into Risc-v which is open source to avoid US sanctions.

US sanctions harm the poodle manufacturers much more than China. Causing disruptions in a system that was based on division of labor have been disrupted by Trump and Biden, two men that have no clue what division of labor means. These are not high tech politicians. They are very low tech.

With the very slow rollout and inconsistency of 5G, focusing on 5G phones to write the Huawei obituary is lunacy.

And for the yappers that love blocking tech and aiming sanctions, if Qualcomm can’t make chips and sell them, they go out of business. China is the largest buyer of chips in the world so if you can’t sell to China, you are gone. Trump and Biden never quite got that memo.

By early 2022, China will be in full production of 14nm chips. That means they will have all the components, reagents, ion implanters. etc. Unlike any other country, China will be self-sufficient in all the products that encompassed the division of labor system.

Peter Wennink is spot on. “Chip blocking has only harmed the US supply chain and caused industry-wide chip shortages in non-Chinese firms. The US political strategy will fail. It is not even working in the short term.”

“I believe that export controls are not the right way to manage your economic risks if you have determined that there is an economic risk,” Wennink said during an online industry event on Wednesday, arguing that if “you close China from access to technology, that will also cost non-Chinese economies a lot of jobs and a lot of income.”

Wennink stated that China will develop its own tool eventually. China is working on EUV now.

The US has suddenly come to the recognition that only Taiwan and South Korea have much in the way of Foundry Capacity. At present TSMC holds most of the world hostage. A Taiwan earthquake would put the US out of Business. So while the US pretends to be friends with Taiwan, it is scrambling to reduced its dependence on TSMC.

The same hold true for ASML and its EUV. IF the factory burned down in Holland, then the US would be out of business in narrow gate chips.

So how many years will it take for the US to build their own FAB capability. I say it will take at least 5 years and the US will not be competitive. Nobody is gong to go to INTEL for FAB. No competitor wants to disclose their chip designs to a competitor.

Meanwhile look at SMIC… 91% of SMIC’s revenue came from older tech (40nm/45nm and up) while only 9.1% of the quarter’s wafer revenue came from 28nm and 14nm nodes (the 28nm node was more popular than the 14nm).

The new SMIC 9 billion dollar FAB plant in Shanghai will target 28nm and I would expect the 14nm as well.

AS for Qualcomm, it is expanding its operations in China, not the USA. They clearly know how this whole Nancy Kerrigan kneecapping escapade of the US will end.

Comment on Qualcomm will reportedly continue helping Huawei to skirt US sanctions with 5G-less chips by Ryan Daws Thu, 09 Sep 2021 08:56:42 +0000 In reply to Dave B.

A matter of perspective I guess. The practice is mildly controversial given the wider sanctions but I do make clear that “Qualcomm is using an entirely lawful loophole”

Comment on Qualcomm will reportedly continue helping Huawei to skirt US sanctions with 5G-less chips by Dave B Tue, 07 Sep 2021 16:03:05 +0000 why is this article dripping with insinuations and innuendo that Qualcomm is trying to do something shady and illegal?

Comment on 5G will spark re-invention in a defining year for telecoms by Isaac Valderrama Tue, 30 Mar 2021 12:04:13 +0000 Estimados Sres. Avishai y Neill reciban mis saludos.

Buen articulo creo debería ser leído por las autoridades de telecomunicaciones y los CEO de las Operadoras.

Me impacto en las nuevas características de la optimización de la red 5G.

La rentabilidad de una estación base móvil.

Para esto la Fibra optica jugara un rol importante.

Un abrazo
