According to Taiwanese media reports, the US plans to cut the standard of “technology from the Us” from 25 per cent to 10 per cent, with the power to block non-US companies such as TSMC from supplying Huawei. The company reported that TSMC’s internal assessment of 7nm, which is derived from less than 10 percent of U.S. technology, could continue to be available, but 14nm would be limited.
To that end, Huawei’s chip company, Heith, accelerated the shift of chip products to 7nm and 5nm, while the 14nm products were dispersed from SMIC, avoiding U.S. restraint.
A TSMC spokesman said it was closely watching the U.S. expanding supply restrictions to China, and that no formal measures had been seen, and U.S. chip companies and software companies were also actively communicating with the U.S. government, hoping not to take measures that would hurt U.S. companies. At present, it is difficult to comment on the impact of TSU, but still in the normal provision of contract services.
According to Bloomberg, Reuters and other media reports, the U.S. may cut the standard from 10 percent on January 17 next year. TSMC 7nm technology in the United States accounted for between 9% to 10%, 14nm process u.S. technology accounted for more than 15%. TSMC declined to comment.
