Information on the conclusion of the US deal with the Netherlands and Japan to limit the export of chips to China has been confirmed

According to the American edition of Bloomberg, citing its sources, the administration of President Joe Biden nevertheless concluded an agreement with the Netherlands and Japan to limit the export of some advanced machines for the production of microcircuits to China. The agreement was reached in talks that ended on Friday in Washington.

The publication notes that the agreement is aimed at undermining Beijing's ambitions to create its own chip manufacturing facilities in the domestic market. According to the agreement, such companies as ASML Holding NV (Netherlands) and Nikon Corp. with Tokyo Electron Ltd. (Japan) will begin to limit the supply of some of its high-tech products to China. In particular, these companies will stop supplying China with equipment that can be used to produce advanced chips.



The agreement is a victory for Biden, who seeks to contain Beijing's rise in power by cutting off the country from the world's tiniest semiconductors.

However, ASML chief executive Peter Wennink warns that US policy could have unintended consequences, noting that it would not be difficult for Beijing to move to develop its own technology and not depend on its imports.

It will take time, but eventually they (the Chinese) will get their way

Wennink said.

      In Taiwan, the production of chips, not equipment) although Nikon and Cannon produce equipment on the technical processes of the last decade and Asml is ahead of the rest in this regard,
      but China already has at least two equipment manufacturers that are at least better advanced than the Japanese. So this war will only accelerate China's withdrawal from equipment imports and the development of its own manufacturers.

        China has repeatedly proved that if it lacks something, it starts to produce itself.
        So restrictions on the import of equipment will create only temporary difficulties.
        And then China will produce its own equipment.
        Not only have they lost the Chinese market. So China will lure other customers from them.

              Yes, and there are technologies for the extraction of lithium from sea water.
              They are not being developed, since Chinese is cheaper to buy. But if these deliveries are interrupted, they will develop.
              So won't China stop trading. Unless, of course, the United States goes crazy on this issue and starts to interfere with trade. And then they will begin to impose duties, set price ceilings. It's fashionable now, go crazy.

    When a person saws the branch on which he sits from the side, it seems that he is insane, but with the policy of the United States, it seems that this is not obvious to everyone. On the other hand, the Americans always sawed and never fell, the tree rotted faster. Now is another case, the Americans cannot die their consumption, and more and more self-sufficient elites appear in the world and they do not like this state of affairs.

    The worst thing that greatly slows down the creation of modern weapons and communication systems for the troops is the fact that modern element base in terms of integrated circuits is not produced in Russia at all.
    Even what the best factories can do now is 0.6 and 0.13 microns according to a well-established process.
    And such processes are the level of the late 90s and early 00s. Modern chips cannot be made on it.

    Therefore, today in Russia they do not make microcontrollers above 25 MHz and practically do not make flash memory above 128 KB.
    Anything above these values ​​is foreign foundry production, Taiwan or Germany.
    No longer available due to sanctions.

    And now nothing can be done without memory chips - neither an aviation "black box", nor an army tablet, nor an UAV.

        On the official website of Micron, the 65 nm process technology has been “in development” since 2014. And not a single serial chip for this process has ever been presented to the public. Elbrus-4SM, which was supposed to be produced at Mikron according to 65 nm standards, is not presented on the official MCST website and, apparently, never existed in silicon.

        Well, to the heap
        Russian engineers will master the production of chips according to 65-nm standards by 2026

    3-2 nm ASML technologies are needed only for wearable electronics like smartwatches - such chips are too unreliable (in the 2000s they complained about the insufficient reliability of 130nm chips in the stressful conditions of aerospace). By the way, 2nm technology is based on a tin vapor laser developed in the USSR, published in periodicals and remaining a scientific curiosity for a long time.
