As a result of the US’ executive order, a lot of companies have begun cutting ties with Chinese tech giant Huawei. Among them are big names like Google, Intel, Qualcomm, and ARM. And now, we’ll have to add Micron to the list.
Chinese news site Mydrivers reports that the company has issued an official statement to that effect. But in addition to just not doing business with Huawei, Micron has also reportedly asked its partners to also not sell to Huawei anything with Micron chips.
That said, doing so will hurt Micron more that it would Huawei. The report goes on to say that up to 13% of Micron’s revenue from the first half of financial year 2019 came from Huawei. Huawei, on the other hand, does not rely on Micron as much, with South Korean company SK Hynix taking that role.
As you’d have guessed, Micron is a US-based company, specifically in Idaho. While the company announcing that it will no longer work with Huawei is expected, asking its customers to not work with the Chinese tech giant feels like it’s going the extra mile to not be associated with Huawei.
