Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo said she was “upset” when China’s Huawei released a new phone with an advanced chip during her visit to the country last month but noted that the US has no evidence China can make those components “at scale.” From a report: “We are trying to use every single tool at our disposal to deny the Chinese the ability to advance their technology in ways that can hurt us,” Raimondo testified at a congressional hearing Tuesday. The Commerce Department’s Bureau of Industry and Security this month opened an investigation into Huawei’s phone and the “purported” 7-nanometer chip, made by China’s Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp, which was discovered in a teardown of the handset that TechInsights conducted for Bloomberg News. It is unclear whether SMIC has approval from Commerce to supply Huawei, which has been blacklisted by the US. Raimondo said she won’t comment on any active investigations, but that the Commerce Department will investigate every time it appears a company may have violated US export controls.
