TSMC halts new orders from Huawei - report

Monday 18 May 2020 | 10:08 CET | News
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSMC) has stopped taking new orders from Huawei, the Nikkei Asian Review reported, with sources saying the move comes after the US government confirmed its intent to restrict the Chinese's company's use of US tech and software for the design and manufacture of its semiconductors abroad. The sources said company is halting new orders to comply with the latest export control regulation, but that orders already in production, and those taken before the new ban, will continue, as long as the chips can be shipped before mid-September.
