ANALYSIS Speculation that South Korean conglomerate Samsung Electronics would come to the aid of beleaguered Chinese telecommunications equipment vendor Huawei Technologies and help it to obtain semiconductors for its business has been more or less squashed after Samsung was given a massive deal by Verizon.
New restrictions put in place by the US in a bid to prevent Chinese telecommunications equipment vendor Huawei Technologies from obtaining the parts it needs to manufacture its smartphones and 5G base stations appear to be showing cracks even before they come into force on 14 September.
Intel will be forced to delay the introduction of 7nm CPUs, with the company telling investors on Friday it would have to push back the schedule for producing the most advanced semiconductors by six months as it has no economically viable way to produce them at the moment.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
