What's happening with Huawei

598px-Huawei_logo

For the past few weeks, Chinese technology company Huawei has been put under severe restrictions by the United States of America. Mr Trump accuses the world’s second-largest smartphone maker of allowing its equipment to be used by Chinese spies.

In recent weeks, Alphabet’s Google has suspended business with Huawei, that requires the transfer of software, hardware and technical services except those publicly available via open source licensing

Following Google’s lead several other American businesses have cut ties with Huawei and two British telecom giants EE and Vodafone have announced that their 5G services will not be offered on Huawei handsets.

The Trump administration on Thursday added Huawei Technologies to a trade blacklist, immediately enacting restrictions that will make it extremely difficult for the company to do business with US counterparts.

Washington is widely seen as having taken the initiative in the global campaign against Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, a tech magnate that in the three decades since its founding has become an important part of Beijing’s bid to expand its global power and influence.

Now, according to Reuters, German chipmaker Infineon has also suspended shipments to Huawei technologies, in a sign that US restrictions on Huawei are beginning to affect its relationships beyond America. Infineon joins Qualcomm, Qorvo, Micron Technology, and Western Digital as firms that no longer ship to Huawei. ST Microelectronics, TSMC, Toshiba Memory, and Japan Display Inc. have not yet stopped shipments to the Chinese firm but are investigating the issue and could also suspend business dealings.

Ren Zhengfei, Huawei’s founder, told the media that the company would be fine even if their American suppliers refuse to sell chips to the company. He revealed that the firm has been preparing for this outcome and it’s believed that Huawei will be ready for the next six to twelve months on the hardware front. “We will not change our management at the request of the U.S. or accept monitoring, as ZTE has done,” he said to Reuters.

During Trump’s three day state visit, which kicks off today, he is expected to discuss ties between UK companies and Huawei- adding to suggestions by the Tory leadership that they could tear up plans for the Chinese tech giant to build parts of UK’s 5G network, after the ambassador, Woody Johnson, warned it was a “big risk”.

NewPass Project

A number of European semiconductor firms are working on an ambitious project called NewP@ss which aims to develop next generation e-passports in the EU.

NXP, Infineon and STMicroelectronics are working together on the project creating advanced microelectronics, embedded software and secure platforms for the project.

This is more than just creating a new online passport – it’s a whole system of next generation travel documents. More and more people are checking in online when going abroad or using their smartphones for e-tickets etc. The NewP@ss system is looking at integrating all of this together in one place.

As well as the usual information found on a passport now, the system would also have the ID holder’s biometric data, travel documents such as visas and also arrival and departure stamps. The system would also be easier to update and make changes to rather than reissuing an entirely new passport for name changes or address changes.

There are multiple challenges facing the team from security and safety to convenience and ease of use. Of course security is a huge concern where passports are concerned and this is the number one priority for the companies involved. They are working on highly advanced embedded software platforms and secure 32 bit microcontrollers to run it all.

This is a huge task which will hopefully make travelling around Europe much easier and more secure for us all. The new systems will be introduced gradually, starting this year and running until 2020 and beyond.
