Chip designer ARM has suspended businesswith Huawei, threatening the Chinese company’s ability to create its own chips.BBC News reports that ARM employees have been instructed to halt “all activecontracts, support entitlements, and any pending engagements” with Huawei dueto the US trade ban. The US has banned any US companies from doing businesswith the Chinese telecom giant without permission from the American government,but ARM is based in the UK and owned by the Japanese SoftBank group.

芯片设计商ARM已经终止了和华为的业务关系,威胁到华为建立自主芯片的能力。BBC新闻报道称ARM雇员被要求停止和华为的一切有效合同,不再向华为提供支持。美国政府禁止任何美国公司在没有美国政府授权的情况下和这家中国电信巨头进行业务往来,但是ARM位于英国,为日本软银集团所?#23567;?br />
ARM is concerned it is affected by the USban, with an internal memo reportedly revealing that its chip designs include“US origin technology.” ARM develops some processor designs in Austin, Texasand San Jose, California, which could place it under the US restrictions.Huawei relies on ARM for chip architecture designs for its own Kirinprocessors, and it pays to license these. Without the licenses, Huawei will notbe able to continue manufacturing its own processors using ARM designs and itsHiSilicon fabless semiconductor company.

ARM担心自己受到美国禁令影响,据报道其内部备忘录披露其芯片设计包含了“美国的源?#38469;酢薄RM在德州奥斯丁和加州圣何塞?#20889;?#29702;器设计中心,所以会受到美国禁令的影响。华为?#35272;礎RM的芯片架构设计来设计自己的麒麟处理器,要向ARM支付授权费。没有了授权,华为将无法继续使用ARM的设计以及其海思无晶圆厂半导体公司来制造自己的处理器。

“ARM is complying with the latest restrictions set forth by the USgovernment and is having ongoing conversations with the appropriate USgovernment agencies to ensure we remain compliant,” says an ARM spokesperson ina statement to The Verge. “Arm values its relationship with our longtimepartner HiSilicon and we are hopeful for a swift resolution on this matter.”

“ARM会遵守美国政府最新的限制措施,而且将和美国相关政府部门进行对话以确保我们是顺从的,”ARM的一位发言人对The Verge网站说。“ARM重视与我们的长期伙伴海思的关系,我们希望这个问题可以迅速得到解决。”



Even without access to these key componentsHuawei faces a challenge, but without ARM’s architecture designs or instructionsets it faces a nearly impossible task of manufacturing a smartphone without UStechnology inside.

没有了这些关键部件,华为将面临挑战,但是没有了ARM的结构设计或者指令集的话,再加上没有了美国?#38469;酰?#37027;么华为几乎是不可能制造出智能手机的。
