So, a developer of mobile processor Huawei Hisilicon company lost software – finally: Huawei and Synopsys terminated the agreement on cooperation.
American programmers provided hardware chipset Kirin algorithms. The latest development in the cooperation of steel chips Kirin 985 and 990 models came on the market, but they’ve developed that allows you to create another generation of devices.
In addition to Synopsys, on the termination of the contracts was announced by the owners of Cadence Design Systems, who also worked on the family Kirin. According to analysts, the loss of contractors will significantly slow down the progress of the Chinese company.
