After two consecutive years of crackdown in the United States, no company dares to OEM Huawei's advanced process chips, and the latest 5nm Kirin 9000 processor is out of print. However, Huawei does not intend to give up Hisilicon, and the team of more than 7000 people is still developing high-end chips.
It is unacceptable for other companies to maintain a semiconductor department with more than 7000 employees and fail to generate revenue in a short period of time,However, Huawei executives said in an interview recently that they are private companies, not affected by external forces, and will not give up Hisilicon.
Hisilicon was founded in 2004, formerly the chip design department of Huawei. In recent years, it has developed advanced mobile phone processors for Huawei, and is considered to be one of the most advanced chip design companies in the world.
As a result of the sanctions, Huawei Hisilicon has no company to produce chips, and its Q1 revenue was only $385 million, down 87% from the same period last year.
However, Huawei executives said in an interview that Hisilicon will continue to develop semiconductor chips,We can handle it in the next two or three years.
It was reported in May that Huawei's Hisilicon department is still designing and developing 3nm chips, and the final name may be Kirin 9010.
