AMD becomes the first licensed supplier after the “Huawei ban” takes effect

After the “Huawei ban” officially took effect on September 15, AMD became the first supplier to publicly state that it was licensed.

After September 15, Samsung, MediaTek, Sony and other manufacturers confirmed that they would stop supplying Huawei before September 15. Manufacturers such as Micron Technology, which had previously obtained export licenses from the U.S. government, also stopped supplying Huawei.

At the Deutsche Bank Technology Conference today, Forrest Norrod, senior vice president and general manager of the data center and embedded division of American processor giant AMD, revealed that the company has obtained a supply license to Huawei, and it is not expected that it will not be due to the “Huawei ban” in the United States. And have a significant impact on AMD’s business.

Previously, manufacturers including Intel, Micron Technology, Samsung, SK Hynix, TSMC, MediaTek, and SMIC in mainland China disclosed that they had submitted license applications to the U.S. Department of Commerce to continue supplying Huawei.

However, some manufacturers applying for licenses and industry experts believe that there is little hope of passing the application. AMD is one of the processor suppliers of Huawei’s laptops, and its Ryzen series CPUs have been adopted by many of Huawei’s laptops.

Forrest Norrod emphasized that it is 100% committed to compliance with U.S. law and has taken appropriate steps to ensure AMD manages its entity list and interactions with customers or potential customers.
