Huawei makes phones and 5G base stations without US ICs
5 December 2019 | Business, Electronics
The Mate 30, Huawei’s latest phone, has no US chips, according to reports by UBS and Fomalhaut Techno Solutions.
Chips from Qorvo, Qualcomm, Skyworks, Broadcom and Cirrus Logic are replaced by chips from NXP, Mediatek, Murat and HiSilicon.
It is the result of the US President’s war with Huawei.
The Mate 30 still uses Android for now. But for the OS, they have a ready-made solution that they apply to the latest TVs.
Huawei also managed to make 5G base stations that do not have US ICs.
At this point, Huawei can make about 5,000 base stations without US chips a month, but that should increase to about 125,000 a month next year.
