According to foreign media reports, TechInsights, a professional chip disassembly research organization, dismantled the Mate 30 Pro 5G and found that Huawei’s self-developed chips accounted for about 50%, and most of the remaining chips came from Europe, Japan, China, and Taiwan. , Only a few chips come from the United States, showing that Huawei’s spare tire plan has reaped fruitful results.

Huawei’s strong chip research and development capabilities

In fact, Huawei has developed chips for more than 20 years. As early as the 1990s, it began to develop chips for its own communication equipment. It is precisely because it has begun to deploy chip research and development early, and has accumulated a deep technical background. Brilliant achievements in the chip business.

Self-developed chips account for half of Mate30, Huawei’s spare tire plan has achieved fruitful results

In 2004, Huawei, which had already laid a certain foundation in chip technology research and development, split its chip business into an independent chip research and development department-Huawei HiSilicon was born. In 2005, Huawei developed the WCDMA baseband. At this time, no other mobile phone companies were willing to adopt it. In order to support the development of baseband chips, the network card product was launched, and the network card business soon became the number one in the world.

In 2009, Huawei developed the first mobile phone chip K9, but due to the lack of maturity of this chip and its choice of the Windows system that began to decline at that time, K9 was not adopted by mobile phone companies. In 2011, Huawei established the mobile phone business as one of its major business units, and supporting the development of the mobile phone chip business became a major responsibility of the mobile phone business unit. Since then, although Huawei’s K3V2, K3V3, etc., have some shortcomings, Huawei mobile phones insist on adopting it. It provided support for the development of mobile phone chips. It was not until 2012 that it developed the most technologically complete mobile phone chip Kirin 920. Since then, the mobile phone chip business has gradually embarked on the road of rapid development. This year, the Kirin 990 5G chip it launched has become the world’s most technologically advanced chip. Leading 5G mobile phone chips, two months ahead of competitors.

With the breakthrough of Huawei HiSilicon’s technology in mobile phone chips, it has begun to enter a wider range of industries. Now it has a layout in power management chips, TV chips, monitoring chips, SSD control chips and other industries, and it has been in these industries. Some of them have achieved an industry leading position. Huawei HiSilicon has also grown rapidly as a result, and it has become the 14th largest chip design company in the world.

Huawei’s founder and president Ren Zhengfei said that in addition to enhancing its core competitiveness, Huawei’s reason for making chips is to avoid that one day others will not provide chips for Huawei to use, and Huawei can still rely on its own chips. To ensure survival, Huawei HiSilicon is part of its spare tire plan. Unexpectedly, the United States included it on the physical list this year. Many US chip companies stopped supplying chips to Huawei.

The spare tire plan reaps great results

After the United States included Huawei on the physical list, He Tingbo, President of Huawei HiSilicon, sent an internal letter to all HiSilicon employees stating that “all the “spare tires” (chips) we have built will be “turned to normal” overnight, emphasizing that this is Crisis is also an opportunity, providing huge development opportunities for Huawei HiSilicon.

Since then, all employees of Huawei HiSilicon have entered a state of warfare and devoted themselves to research and development of various chips in an effort to achieve self-sufficiency. From the disassembly analysis of the Mate 30 Pro 5G by the dismantling agency TechInsights, it can be seen that Huawei’s self-developed chips have reached 50%. From power management chips to mobile phone chips, they have achieved self-developed, except for a small number of chips from the United States, such as Texas. The device’s wafer, Qualcomm’s RF front-end module, Lingyun’s audio amplifier, and other parts have found alternatives outside the United States.

In the process of getting rid of its dependence on the United States, Huawei has also made significant contributions to the development of China’s chip industry. Huawei is the world’s largest communications equipment company and the second largest mobile phone company. The demand for chips is huge. The cooperation of the domestic chip industry has developed a large number of various chips, which has promoted the development of China’s chip industry into a major force in the world.

Earlier, Huawei also stated that it has produced 5G base station equipment that does not contain US components. It can be seen that after nearly half a year of hard work, Huawei has basically broken the dilemma caused by US restrictions, and survival and development are no longer a problem. Huawei HiSilicon This proves that it has made a huge contribution to Huawei as a spare tire.

China’s manufacturing output value has ranked first in the world, and China’s procurement of chips accounted for nearly half of the world’s total. Huawei’s success in getting rid of U.S. restrictions proves that as long as Chinese companies continue to improve themselves, they can always get out of their own path and see a brighter future. This is a question worthy of consideration for the Chinese chip industry. It is based on this that China has launched the second phase of the IC Industry Fund. The fund scale exceeds 200 billion yuan, which is larger than the first phase. China’s chip industry will usher in new development. opportunity.
