SHENZHEN -- Huawei Technologies launched a new chipset on Monday for use in data centers. The chipset, jointly developed with U.K. semiconductor maker Arm Holdings, delivers improved performance and reduces power consumption.

Shenzhen-based Huawei wants to enhance its competitiveness by developing its own chipsets, key components in advanced electronics like computers and smartphones. It also hopes to stabilize chipset supply amid the simmering U.S.-China trade spat, which is not expected to end soon.
