Kirin je uz zastaveny, vdaka US sankciam, ktore sa dotkli aj ARM.
Huawei CEO Richard Yu has told investors that the company will have to stop making its custom Kirin ARM chips because of ongoing sanctions from the United States. That could lead to a reversal in Huawei’s upward trajectory.
The chip drought is a result of the Commerce Department’s expanded order from May 2020. This change blocked shipments of semiconductors to Huawei, even from companies based outside the US. If a silicon manufacturer uses US software or technology, they have to abide by the new rules. TSMC halted chip orders for Huawei’s HiSilicon subsidiary, which makes the Kirin ARM chips. According to Yu, he expects Kirin production to end on September 15th, possibly forever.
