For reasons known to all, after September 15, 2020, Huawei’s Kirin chip will not be able to find a foundry company. TSMC and Samsung dare not help Huawei’s foundry, even SMIC dare not.

So in a short time, Kirin 9000 became a swan song, and because the Kirin 9000 became a swan song, so the Kirin chip uses one piece less, so the release of the P50 is also indefinitely delayed.

Huawei’s Kirin chip is still being developed. When will the king return again?

According to agency data, in the first quarter of 2021, Huawei HiSilicon’s revenue was only 385 million U.S. dollars, a decrease of 87% from the same period last year.

Therefore, many people think that since the Kirin chip is no longer able to be produced, Huawei HiSilicon’s research and development may be adjusted appropriately, such as reducing expenses, reducing costs, and laying off some personnel, or even suspending the development of Kirin chips.

However, recently, some media reported that Huawei executives said in an interview that HiSilicon is a private company and will not be affected by external forces. It will not give up HiSilicon. A team of more than 7,000 people is still developing high-end chips, such as HiSilicon. The 3nm chip is still being designed and developed, and the final name may be Kirin 9010.

So under the condition that it cannot be produced, Kirin chip still insists on research and development, what is the use of this? In my opinion, it has at least two major effects:

1. Maintain the stability of the team and prevent the loss of personnel. Talents are fundamental. If Kirin chips are not developed anymore, then these R&D personnel may leave their jobs and restart the chip project in the future. It is extremely difficult to recruit such a group of talents again.

2. To ensure that the technology does not regress, Huawei HiSilicon only designs chips and does not produce chips. Now that production is not possible, the design can still continue, so as to ensure that the design level is consistent with the world’s top level, and will not regress. Once the chip project is restarted, it will still be the world’s leading.

In addition, Huawei is currently undergoing transformation, such as entering smart cars, vigorously developing the Hongmeng system, etc., retaining these chip talents, continuing to develop chips, and being able to explore more business forms. Although Huawei is currently difficult, it has the money to feed these personnel. There are still some, so Huawei HiSilicon will definitely continue and will not be affected too much.

Of course, then again, if the chip is delayed in production and can only be designed, it will still affect the sense of accomplishment of these developers to a certain extent, because the products in the laboratory are still different from the products that are used on the market. , I only hope that Huawei will pass the storm and the Kirin chip will return as the king again.
