Automotive chips: Avoiding U.S. regulation, Huawei rumored to find European STMicroelectronics cooperation in chip design and development
Huawei reported that it has collaborated with STMicroelectronics chip maker STMicro to design and develop mobile phone and automotive chips. Reuters
“Nippon Economic News” reported that Huawei found a joint venture between STMicroelectronics, a chip manufacturer in France and Italy, to jointly design actions and chips for automobiles. In order to avoid the possible impact of increased US export control.
Two sources with knowledge of the situation revealed to Nikkei that STMicro is Huawei’s long-term sensor chip supplier. The cooperation between the two companies also focuses on strengthening Huawei’s research and development in autonomous driving. Automotive chips are STMicro’s strengths. The two sides began to cooperate in the development of chips as early as last year, but neither was made public.
People familiar with the matter said that by collaborating with STMicro, Huawei can obtain the latest software needed to develop advanced chips; these software are mainly provided by two American manufacturers, Synopsys and Cadence Design. Cooperating with European manufacturers to develop, instead of designing and developing orders for contract manufacturers, will give Huawei more flexibility to respond to export controls that the United States does not know how to develop.
