you seriously believe the Hegemon care if HiSilicon is part of Huawei or not? The Hegemon wants to stop China’s tech progress cold.Personally, I think it's time for HiSilicon to be spun off as an independent entity or sold to Unisoc/Tsinghua.
It means HiSilicon can continue designing and manufacturing chips without restriction, and then selling them to anyone.
This means more competition for Huawei, as their competitors can buy those chips as well.
But at least Huawei still has access, which is better than the alternative.
And Huawei gets a cash infusion to invest in R&D in other areas..
