Chinese chipmaker, SMIC, seeks to increase chip production against US restrictions

Chinese chipmakers, including SMIC, want to begin producing next-generation smartphone processors this year, despite US efforts to curb them.

Chinese chipmakers intend to produce next-generation smartphone processors as early as this year, despite US efforts to limit their development of breakthrough technologies, according to a report.

Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. (SMIC), the country’s largest chipmaker, has set up new semiconductor production lines in Shanghai to mass produce Huawei-designed chips, according to the report, citing sources.

SMIC plans to leverage its existing stock of US and Dutch-made equipment to create 5-nanometer chips, it said.

Huawei and SMIC did not immediately respond to Reuters’ requests for comment.

Washington prohibits U.S. corporations from providing technology to SMIC without a special license because its alleged collaboration with China’s military is deemed a danger to American national security.

Faced with these constraints, the Chinese government has made significant investments to build a self-sufficient semiconductor supply chain.
