Huawei is one of the largest smartphone makers in the world. However, due to the restrictions of essential components from America and its allies, Huawei’s survival is now an open topic of discussion. On November 9, 2020, Professor Mo Huang from Institute of Microelectronics was cordially invited to deliver a seminar talk on “Will Huawei Phones be Limited Edition?” More than 60 students attended the event.
With a warm welcome and introduction from Professor Benzi Zhang, Master of Shiu Pong College, Professor Huang introduced the topic by reviewing the political controversy of Huawei, challenging students to think about how U.S.’s restrictions on Huawei has affected its development. He then disassembled the Huawei phone, introduced the components and their manufacturers and compared the chip making technology of different tech giants.
