US knocks China off its feet: the latest ban will not allow the development of the semiconductor industry

Published

on

The latest U.S. export ban on computer-aided electronic design (EDA) software to China could prevent Chinese chip makers from gaining access to cutting-edge semiconductor technologies based on 3nm processes, TrendForce writes.

The Bureau of Industry and Security of the US Department of Commerce on Friday announced an export ban on EDA software for GAAFET transistors, a next-generation semiconductor technology developed by US chip maker Intel Corp and Samsung Electronics Co of South Korea.

It is reported that such transistors are key in the development of microcircuits used in military equipment, including defense satellites. GAAFET enables faster, more energy efficient, and more radiation resistant integrated circuits that can improve many commercial and military devices.

Chinese chip developers will face challenges in developing next-generation chips, TrendForce said in a report. The world’s two largest EDA tool vendors, Synopsys Inc and Cadence Design Systems Inc, based in the US, together hold a 62% share of the global market, while third place Siemens EDA has a 13% share.

According to TrendForce, although Chinese chip designers and manufacturers have American software, they may not be able to update those programs to comply with the new regulations.

The EDA software market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 13.8% to $13.6 billion from last year to 2024.

The US Bureau of Industry and Security has issued an interim final rule that introduces new export controls on four technologies, including accessories, software and technologies used to manufacture semiconductors.

Hyundai showed the concept of the K808 armored personnel carrier

Hyundai Rotem, Hyundai’s military vehicle division, has announced a new generation of armored personnel carriers and tanks at DX Korea 2022. Their feature will be the use of hydrogen power plants and artificial intelligence systems.

Hyundai showed the concept of the K808 armored personnel carrier with a hydrogen power plant.  The prototype is expected to be released in 2026.

The new armored personnel carrier bears the symbol NGWAV (Next-generation Wheeled Armored Vehicle, new generation armored personnel carrier), the tank – NGMBT (Next-generation Main Battle Tank, main battle tank of the new generation). They will replace, respectively, the K808 armored personnel carrier and the K2 MBT tank, which are in service with the army of the Republic of Korea.

Hyundai showed the concept of the K808 armored personnel carrier with a hydrogen power plant.  The prototype is expected to be released in 2026.

Hyundai Rotem notes that the novelties are being developed taking into account modern technologies – they will use AI, a fuel (hydrogen) cell power plant, an autonomous driving system, and next-generation weapons.

NGWAV will be based on the current K808 platform with a hydrogen power plant. The project started this year, the prototype should appear in 2026.

The company takes ten years to create NGWAV and NGMBT, while some characteristics of the promising armored personnel carrier are already known. Its weight will not exceed 30 tons, the maximum speed will be 100 km/h, the cruising range is 600 km. However, there may be some changes in terms of power reserve, since it all depends on how many fuel cells will be placed on board. Also, NGWAV will receive an uninhabited tower, a 40-mm cannon and a rocket launcher.

The Redmi smartphone costs just over 100 Redmi A1 render

The source published details about the Redmi A1 + smartphone. As the name suggests, this model will be an improved version of the previously released Redmi A1. And there will only be one improvement.

This is a fingerprint scanner. Redmi A1 does not have it, while Redmi A1+ has the corresponding sensor on the back panel. There will be no more differences between Redmi A1 and Redmi A1 +.

Redmi A1 + will receive a screen with a diagonal of 6.52 inches and HD + resolution, SoC MediaTek Helio A22, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of flash memory (in the basic version), a 5-megapixel front camera and an 8-megapixel main camera (there will be a second image sensor , but its resolution is not reported), a 5000 mAh battery with support for 10 W charging. The device will run pure Android version 12. Other features include a standard headphone jack and a microUSB port.

The exact cost of Redmi A1 + is not called, but the source logically explains that the inclusion of a fingerprint scanner in the design will have a minimal impact on the price. If Redmi A1 is priced at 100 euros, then Redmi A1 + will be slightly more expensive than 100 euros (or $ 100).

Is there a meteorite? Chinese scientists believe that dinosaurs began to die out before the meteorite fell

Is there a meteorite Chinese scientists believe that dinosaurs began

Researchers from the China University of Geosciences, after examining more than 1,000 eggshell remains, suggested that dinosaurs were on the path to extinction millions of years before the meteorite fell.

Is there a meteorite?  Chinese scientists believe that dinosaurs began to die out before the meteorite fell

Fossilized eggshells and whole eggs of dinosaurs that lived two million years before the meteorite hit have been discovered in central China. Despite the huge number of remains, they belonged to only two different taxa – hadrosaurids and oviraptors. At the same time, the number of species has been constantly decreasing for all two million years. This may indicate that biodiversity was already extremely low then.

The decline in biodiversity has weakened the collective ability of dinosaurs to adapt after the impact of the asteroid Chicxulub that fell in Mexico. This means that the prerequisites for the mass extinction of dinosaurs were formed millions of years before the meteorite fell.

Low species diversity in the same period was also characteristic of North America, i.e., the decrease in diversity took place globally. Causes could be volcanic eruptions and climate change. Some studies suggest that dinosaur diversity may have begun to decline 10 million years before the meteorite impact. Opponents of this hypothesis believe that less than 20% of the dinosaurs were in decline before the meteorite fell, so it is impossible to explain their extinction only by “earthly” reasons. The authors emphasize that further research is needed on this topic.
