AMD Senior Vice President Forrest Norrod has confirmed that the company was granted a license to sell its products to some of the companies in the US Entity List.
The licenses secured by AMD ensures that there won’t be a big impact on the business at this time. In addition, the company has assured that it will comply with all the rules and regulations.
What wasn’t revealed, however, are the names of the companies included in the license which means it may or may not include Huawei. This being the case, there is still at least a sliver of hope for Huawei to be able to deal with US-based companies again.
Huawei was added to the US Entity List last year which meant companies like Google, Qualcomm, and Intel were banned to trade with the Chinese company. We still experience this now with the latest Huawei smartphones lacking Google Mobile Services. One company that was approved to deal with the Chinese company though is Microsoft who had its trade request approved by the US Commerce Department late last year.
