File Photo: XinhuaTaiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSMC), the worlds biggest contract chipmaker, has opened its Q4 advanced process capacity originally booked by HiSilicon, a chip subsidiary of Huawei to customers, such as Apple, Qualcomm, MediaTek, and AMD, amid a US ban, according to media reports.The move may increase uncertainties for the Chinese tech giant, especially the rollout of its high-end product series, though it has a stockpile for a certain amount of chips for “emergency use,” analysts said.The iPhone 12 chips have already been in production at TSMC. The A14 processor it ordered will consume TSMCs 5 nanometers production capacity at about 120,000 to 130,000 for Q4, and it expects to “eat” the original 5 nanometers reserved by Huawei HiSilicon. In addition, OPPO, Vivo, and other mobile phone manufacturers will increase their orders, reports said.The Trump administration in May moved to block global chip supplies to blacklisted telecom equipment giant Huawei. The regulation, which began on May 14, with a 120-day grace period, will also affect TSMC, a vital Huawei supplier.”The firm may have not yet secured a license from the US and is making preparations for the loss of orders from Huawei,” Xiang Ligang, an industry analyst, told the Global Times on Monday.Another insider told the Global Times that Huawei had stockpiled chips which could be enough through a certain period, but “everyone is taking one step and looking around before making another.”The companys stockpiles of certain self-designed chips essential to telecom equipment will run out in 2021, according to a Bloomberg report, citing people familiar with the matter.”The policy is changing every day,” the insider said.”We cannot just rely on a single company like Huawei but should unite the countrys efforts to win this battle,” said the insider.Huawei said in an earlier statement the US ban would impact expansion, maintenance, and continuous operations for networks worth hundreds of billions of dollars they have rolled out in more than 170 countries.TSMC did not respond to an interview request from the Global Times as of press time on Monday.RELATED ARTICLES:UK should think twice on potential damage without Huawei: analysts Worlds first auto with Huawei 5G technology soon to be releasedHuawei looks forward to Canada’s ‘evidence-based decision’ on 5GPosted in: COMPANIESvar wxs = (function() {return navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf(micromessenger) !== -1})();if (!wxs) {/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 1190988;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = https:// + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();}Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.blog comments powered by Disqusload_file(“/includes/biz_right.html”);load_file(“/includes/footer.html”);$(document).ready(function($){$(“#channel-list .row-content”).each(function(){  if($(this).children().length==1){$(this).children().css(width,100%);}
