1. Huawei uses ARM-based processors, like its new Kirin.  ARM-based designs use American IP.  Transfer of American IP to Huawei now seems banned, hence ARM UK cannot sell its product (ARM chip designs) to Huawei.

2. Japanese maker makes mobile test equipment for sale to Huawei and other makers of mobiles. The test equipment contains American IP (mostly code in this case). Transfer of American IP to Huawei now seems banned, hence Japanese maker cannot sell its products to Huawei.

The so-called US/China trade war has now spread to affect the profits and business of a Japanese-owned (Softbank) UK business and a Japanese business in the US and Japan.

Some more background

Mark my words, Western companies toeing the US line on Huawei is going to backfire—China doesn't like to feel (and won't be) bullied by the West anymore!

This is an amusing take on the situation by Trevor Noah, but it is right on the money!

First they steal "our" IP and sell us cheap s$!t, now they destroy the ozone layer again (to make the cheap s$!t we buy from them)—Brit sarcasm for the sarcasm challenged.

Like most bullies, he'll step back when challenged, and he's just about to blink first:

A glossy review of Huawei history but no actual facts about whether backdoors have been found by NSA or GCHQ or the 'Five Eyes'.

Good discussion on this on the beeb this morning. All women too very refreshing departure from the crumbly old male talking heads  ;D

Isn't it time China played their ace card and ban apple products being sold in the country! Game over for the Chump!

Even better would be to order Foxxcon to stop production of apple products, halt all pending shipments of finished iPhones and recall to port any Chinese registered freighters carrying apple goods.

The Chump has a one-track (aka single-cell) brain.

Watch stock indices roil as the rate increases 5%/month until reaching 25% in October—remember all those US auto parts made in Mexico? Not to forget Mexican fruit and vegetables, but maybe cheaper avocados in Japan will be the end result.
