Huawei launches server chipset as China pushes to cut reliance on imports



By Sijia Jiang

HONG KONG (Reuters) - Huawei Technologies Co Ltd [HWT.UL] on Monday launched a new chipset for use in servers, at a time when China is pushing to enhance its chip-making capabilities and reduce its heavy reliance on imports, especially from the United States.


Huawei, which gets the bulk of its revenue from the sale of telecommunications equipment and smartphones, is seeking growth avenues in cloud computing and enterprise services


Chinese firms are also seeking to minimize the impact of a trade dispute that has seen China and the United States slap tariffs on each other's technology imports.


For Huawei, the launch of the chipset - called the Kunpeng 920 and designed by subsidiary HiSilicon - boosts its credentials as a semiconductor designer, although the company said it had no intention of becoming solely a chip firm.


"It is part of our system solution and cloud servicing for clients ... We will never make our chipset business a standalone business," said Ai Wei, who is in charge of strategic planning for Huawei's chipsets and hardware technology.

负责华为芯片组和硬件技术战略规划的Ai Wei表示:“这是我们为客户提供的系统解决方案和云服务的一部分。我们绝不会让芯片组业务成为一项单独的业务”。

The Shenzhen-based company already makes the Kirin series of smartphone chips used in its high-end phones, and the Ascend series of chipsets for artificial intelligence computing launched in October.


It said its latest 7 nanometre, 64-core central processing unit (CPU) would provide much higher computing performance for data centers and slash power consumption. It is based on the architecture of British chip design firm ARM - owned by Japan's SoftBank Group Corp <9984.T> - which is seeking to challenge the dominance in server CPUs of U.S. maker Intel Corp .

The Huawei CPU is a 7nm design. The AMD new chip is also 7nm.

It makes business sense to develop one own ICs to avoid being held hostage by outside firms.

China and Russ try extremely hard to reverse engineering chip set and chip set maker know that.

Rolling out their newest line of stolen technology.

China is producing 7nm and Intel is still on 10nm outdated design, yet people still believe China copied such outdated design. China purchase Intel chip because it is cheap although outdated. They license from the best AMD. Intel should wake up and bulk up now.

America is truly shooting itself in the foot by accusing and sanctioning Huawei without providing any proofs. While temporary setbacks to those manufacturers, it will force them to turn to homegrown, or other, more reliable suppliers in the future. American chip-makers will surely loose business on the long run.

Well done, Huawei, very well done indeed. Keep up with the good work and "Make China Strong, Prosperous and Great Again"
