In September 2020, Qualcomm and all the other US-based semiconductor companies were forced to stop selling chips to Huawei.
On November 14th, a Qualcomm speaker said that: “We have received a license for some products including 4G products”. When asked the time to resume supplying 5G products to Huawei, the company didn’t reveal relevant information.
Why HUAWEI was certified as the best employer in Europe
Besides Qualcomm, many chip manufacturers, such as Intel, AMD, and Skyworks, have received licenses to supply goods for Huawei.
According to USA authorities, USA will allow more chip companies to supply subassemblies to Huawei as long as such companies don’t use the chips for Huawei’s 5G operations.
