Germany's Infineon suspends US shipments to Huawei

Chipmaker halts deliveries to review impact of curb on Chinese tech giant

TAIPEI -- German chipmaker Infineon Technologies has suspended certain shipments to Huawei Technologies, three people familiar with the matter told the Nikkei Asian Review, in the first sign that Washington's crackdown on the Chinese tech giant is beginning to choke off vital chip supplies from non-U. S. companies.

The German chipmaker confirmed to Nikkei that it was halting deliveries of products originating in the U.S. due to the new rules. However it insisted that the majority of products supplied to Huawei had not been affected by the U.S. export controls and these deliveries continued.
