(Reuters) – China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd is asking its top Asian chipmakers to keep deliveries after Washington decided to curb the telecommunications giant's access to US technology, the Nikkei said on Friday, citing sources at knowledge of the issue.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd said it will retain supplies for the time being, even though it was considering the impact of the Washington decision, according to the report.
Innolux Corp, which supplies the screen to Huawei, said it will have an impact, but it was difficult to determine its scope and that its shipping program for Huawei remained unchanged, according to the report.
US chip makers such as Qualcomm Inc and Qorvo Inc suspended shipments on Friday, the report said, while other US companies are preparing to follow the example of restrictions.
Huawei, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co, Innolux, Qualcomm and Qorvo did not immediately respond to Reuters' request for comment.
The Trump administration on Thursday added Huawei to a commercial blacklist, putting immediate restrictions in place that will make it extremely difficult for the company to buy parts and components from US companies without US government approval.
