US chip firms seeking to ease ban on Huawei: report Pixabay

American processor companies are lobbying the government to ease the ban on supplying components to Chinese telecommunications equipment vendor Huawei Technologies, a report claims.

Citing "people familiar with the matter", Reuters reported on Monday that Qualcomm and Intel were among the firms trying to get the ban eased, adding that Intel and Xilinx had talked to the Commerce Department in May about the placement of Huawei on the so-called Entity List.

The report comes in the wake of another firm in the sector, Broadcom, saying last week that it expected to take a hit of US$2 billion in its full-year revenue due to the ban.

Huawei spent about US$70 billion on components worldwide in 2018 and about US$11 billion of that was spent with US companies, the report said.

The US Government placed Huawei and 68 of its affiliates on its Entity List on 16 May, meaning that the company would have to seek permission to purchase any American components it needed to manufacture its products.

Four days later, Google announced it was cutting off Huawei's access to future updates of Google's Android and Google Play Store.

On 21 May, the US Commerce Department eased some of the restrictions until August, allowing Huawei to maintain and update existing networks and handsets.
