Huawei's US suppliers, including Qualcomm and Intel, are pressing the US government to soften the ban on Chinese giant smartphone maker.
Following the ban imposed on Huawei by the US government, the Chinese giant can no longer conduct business with US companies.
While this will undoubtedly have a huge impact on Huawei, the ban will also seriously affect the US companies with which the Chinese giant used to run its business.
According to Reuters news, it is estimated that the decision to ban the Chinese giant could cost US companies up to $ 11 billion, which is a huge amount to ban a single company.
It is said that the Chinese giant Huawei spent $ 70 billion in 2018 on the purchase of components, of which $ 11 billion were bought from US companies such as Qualcomm, Intel and Micro.
Nor is it surprising that giants such as Qualcomm want to continue to do business with the Chinese giant despite the ban. Qualcomm says it wants to continue supplying components to China's giant Huawei for "common" devices such as phones and smartwatch.
According to Jimmy Goodrich of the Semiconductor Industry Association, "Non-national security technologies should not fall under the ban, and I passed on that perspective to the government."
It should be noted that although the ban prevents Huawei from doing business with US companies and vice versa, there may be some exceptions that require special approval. Therefore, it is possible, although it does not seem very likely, that some components may still be marketed to the Chinese giant.
