Huawei’s predicament is largely due to the company having American technology on its production line. Google Mobile Services is no longer allowed to use it and it can no longer use American technology at TSMC.
As a result, the company’s chip production line also collapses. As a replacement for the missing Google services, Huawei has released its own Hongmeng OS or HarmonyOS, which is still in development.
Recent reports now also show that Huawei will begin its semiconductor project. Huawei’s semiconductor project is called the "Tashan Project".
Huawei’s Consumer Business CEO, Yu Chengdong, has now confirmed that it will start from scratch to create a new ecosystem. It is hoped for breakthroughs in basic research and precision manufacturing in physical materials science. The company is also vigorously increasing its investments in materials and core technologies. In addition, it hopes to identify the link between new materials + new processes and break the bottleneck that hinders innovation.
In addition, Huawei intends to set up its own chip factory, manufacture integrated circuit chip products in-house, and build a chip manufacturing facility that does not use American equipment and materials. This chip supply chain will be independent and controllable.
According to the news, Huawei has started working with some companies and is preparing to build a 45nm chip production line without American technology. The schedule is that they will be ready by the end of the year. The company is also considering a collaboration to set up a 28nm chip production line.
Many of these companies that Huawei is working with on the "Tashan Project" are Chinese companies. Most of these companies also have no international presence. Huawei wants to achieve complete independence from American technology.
