    What I find interesting the reaction of Japanese branch of Huawei? Anybody know how big an operation Huawei has and what are they doing in Japan

    Still, anxiety is creeping through Huawei offices from Tokyo to Sydney, employees say. “We can’t deny that it’s had a negative impact, as bad news around Huawei is reported every day,” one of them says. “But employees in Japan are rallying, and we’re just trying to keep working as usual. Some of our customers are even trying to cheer us up.”

    The US doesn't care about values and principles anymore. All it cares is money. Moral high ground? What's moral? What's high ground? As long as Huawei can be killed and China can be contained, all cards are on the table.

    Relate to chip design, I heard that though HiSilicon can design its own chip, it uses EDA software which have sources from the US. Does that mean that HiSilicon cannot buy new version of EDA software thus affect its future chip design?

    China has their own EDA I believe but for 28 nm chip or larger not the cutting edge of 14 or 7 nm It come but it will take a while
    They might not get and update but sofar Cadence has not stop the license only synopsis stop the license
    Via xyz

    Regarding EDA tools, there's still no confirmation that Cadence has ended support and sales to Huawei.

    They will have to. It's a government decree.
    But it will just cost them money in software licenses. Software can be pirated.

    I don't think a big company such as Huawei won't use pirated software because it would hurt its reputation and give the US more excuses to ban it
