Wawi, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of smartphones and network equipment, is at the center of the US-China conflict over information technology and information security. Wawi’s access to American components and technology, including Google’s music services, and other smartphone services, and penalties were tightened in May when the White House banned tech companies around the world from using American technology to manufacture components for Wawi.
The production of Kirin chips designed by Wawi’s engineers will stop on September 15 because they are manufactured by contractor companies that use American technologies, said Richard Hugh, president of the company’s consumer unit when he explained that Wawi does not have the ability to produce Chips like this itself. “This is a very big loss for us,” he said. “Unfortunately, in the second round of US sanctions, our chipmakers only received orders until May 15. Production will stop on September 15. This year may be the last generation of Wavy Kirin chips. “.
