According to reports, the Biden administration intends to extend current restrictions on US semiconductors and chip-making equipment exports to China. According to the source, the US Commerce Department wants to publish new regulations to further restrict the export of semiconductors based on the restrictions previously expressed in letters to three US corporations. According to the letters, the corporation prohibits supplying chipmaking equipment to Chinese facilities that make cutting-edge semiconductors. Additional actions against China are anticipated in the rules as well.
According to a recent report by Reuters, the Biden administration intends to increase its restrictions on US sales of semiconductors needed for artificial intelligence and chip-making equipment to China next month.
According to the limitations that were previously revealed to three US firms, including Applied Materials, KLA, and Lam Research, the US Commerce Department is anticipated to publish the new regulations.
The businesses have recognized in public the letters that barred them from shipping chipmaking equipment to Chinese manufacturers that make advanced semiconductors using techniques with a 14 nanometer or smaller size.
The sellers can only sell chips if they have licenses from the Commerce Department.
As was already noted, the new rules reportedly call for more sanctions on China. Additionally, there is a potential that the limitations could alter and that the regulations will be released later than anticipated.
