Now Huawei will run out of ARM Chipsets

Little by little, Huawei is losing partner companies in the United States after a decree signed by President Donald Trump. After Google, Huawei is now expected to lose business with British manufacturer ARM, responsible for the architecture of most mobile processors currently used.

According to the BBC , an internal ARM memo instructs employees to cease "all active contracts, support rights and any pending commitments" with Huawei. The order was made for ARM to comply with the new US trade rules.

Why would ARM, which is British, be part of this fight? In the memo, the company itself explains that the design of its processors relies on technology from the United States. Therefore, the company believes that it will be affected by the new rules.

Huawei, with this change, sees itself more "tight." Even if it is a telecommunications giant, the company will have to work hard to reverse the recent losses. Currently, it already works and tests its own operating system to take the place of Google Android . If ARM really stops delivering processors to the Chinese, in a short time, Huawei will have to think of another way out.

"We value our close relationships with our partners, but we recognize the pressure that some of them suffer as a result of politically motivated decisions," Huawei said. We are confident that this regrettable situation can be resolved and our priority continues to be to provide world-class technology and products to our customers around the world."
