Sony Kioxia and other Japanese semiconductor manufacturers stop supplying Huawei
On September 16, according to foreign media reports, Japanese semiconductor manufacturers such as Sony and Kioxia have stopped supplying Huawei due to the US ban .
Sony supplies Huawei with image sensors used in scenes such as smartphone cameras, and the volume of transactions between Sony and Huawei reaches hundreds of billions of yen each year.
Kioxia, the original Toshiba Memory, is the world’s second largest NAND flash memory manufacturer. The word Kioxia is a combination of the Japanese word “kioku” and the Greek word “axia”, combining the dual meanings of “memory” and “value.”
According to the revised version of the ban on Huawei issued by the United States, manufacturers using American technology and software must apply if they want to supply Huawei.
