We still remember that China has made great efforts to make its own early warning airplanes after US banned Israel’s export of such plane to China. Due to such efforts, China is now able to make KJ-2000 and KJ-500 early warning and control planes comparable to not only Israel’s but also US best early warning and control planes.

Chinese scientist Wang Xiaomo was granted China’s top science and technology award for that.

Now due to US ban of Huawi’s major chip suppler Qualcomm’s sale of chips to Huawei, according to SCMP’s report “Huawei’s HiSilicon overtakes Qualcomm as China’s top smartphone processor supplier for first time” on April 29, 2020, Huawei has switched to its own subsidiary HiSilicon for chip supply,

The report says, that as a result, in the first quarter of last year “the Huawei subsidiary’s market share surged to 43.9 per cent, from 36.5 per cent” “and beat Qualcomm for the first time to become China’s top smartphone processor supplier”.

In addition, the report says, “Huawei is also reportedly shifting production of HiSilicon-designed chips away from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC) and towards Shanghai-based Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp (SMIC) as Washington readies new rules which would require foreign companies using US chipmaking equipment to obtain a license before supplying chips to Huawei”. As a result Taiwan’s Mediatek “saw its market share slide year-on-year from 14 per cent to 13.1 per cent”.
