Recently, after the American Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) spoke for Huawei, the International Semiconductor Industry Association (SEMI) also issued a statement of solidarity with Huawei on its official website. In the statement, it hopes that the US government can extend Huawei’s ban for another 120 days. SEMI stated in the statement that although export controls play a certain role in maintaining the national security of the United States, the latest export control regulations will undoubtedly ultimately harm the US semiconductor industry and cause huge uncertainty and damage to the semiconductor supply chain. Sex.
Earlier, SEMI publicly commented in the ban imposed on May 15: These regulations will reduce the willingness of some companies to buy equipment and software made in the United States, and have already caused US$17 million in losses for companies unrelated to Huawei. . SEMI also believes that the unilateral expansion of the scope of restrictions by the U.S. government will bring more losses to the industry, directly damage the existing international customer base, increase the distrust of other countries’ companies in the United States, and encourage companies to work hard to replace the U.S. Technology.
Therefore, SEMI hopes to extend the grace period for products produced before August 17 by 120 days to ensure predictability and immediacy of decision-making, and colleagues to provide more flexibility for products that are not related to 5G. Similarly, the chairman and chief executive officer of SIA also stated last week that the US ban on Huawei will have a negative and profound impact on the US semiconductor industry, and once again reiterated his position to support the sale of insensitive commercial products to China. Conducive to research and innovation in the US semiconductor industry.
It now appears that although the US government wants to contain Chinese companies headed by Huawei, the US semiconductor companies have great opinions on this. After all, as the world’s largest consumer electronics market and manufacturing country, China’s semiconductor-related procurement volume is also ranked first. Once a large amount of the Chinese market is lost, it will also be a heavy blow to US semiconductor companies, which will lead to a series of subsequent R&D plans. The possibility of insufficient funds will affect the progress of research and development, which is even more dangerous.
