Huawei may have found the solution for 5G in its devices

The COVID-19 pandemic in recent years has also been a serious blow to the economy of various companies in the technology sector, for some manufacturers it has gone even worse: this is the example of Huawei which in the last 4 years it suffered a lot both for this aspect but above all for the ban imposed by the United States Department of Commerce first by the Trump administration and then confirmed by Biden.

Such a ban could bring down any company, however surprisingly Huawei holds firm and is one of the companies that invests the most in the research and development sector. The ban put in place by the USA prevents the Chinese giant from accessing Google services and 5G connectivity on its devices. If there is no possibility for Huawei to access Google services, it seems that it has at least found a solution to the problem related to 5G.

According to a report by MyDrivers, in fact, Huawei recently presented a new application to patent some EUV components (or EUVL, Extreme ultraviolet lithography ) and EUV lithography processes, a sophisticated technique used to etch a silicon semiconductor wafer using an extreme ultraviolet light beam. MyDrivers also lists the application number: 202110524685X.

Huawei, through the EUV process, could develop its own 5G chips, confirming the MyDrivers report is also DigiTimes Asia which specifies that the patent has not yet received the green light from the Chinese National Intellectual Properties Administration. It is not known whether Huawei is already capable of producing an EUV machine. This machine is very complex, containing over 100,000 components. However, the submitted patent showcases a solution to the complexity of the EUV process via a more uniform light source.

The success of this process and if Huawei's EUV patent were to be approved, would become a very important milestone for the company's future. All of this would allow Chinese manufacturers to produce cutting-edge chips with support for 5G connectivity. China, in general, is pushing and investing a lot to make it independent in the semiconductor field, this would help speed up operations.

Huawei smartphones could use 5G again, everything will depend on this patent already filed and which will most likely take place in 2023. The coming months, therefore, could be crucial both for Huawei and for the balance of the international smartphone market.

For Huawei, in fact, being able to offer connectivity 5G in your own devices would mean going back to cutting yourself more space and competing with other manufacturers. At that point, "only" the absence of Google services would remain, which the Chinese giant has already worked on by equipping its smartphones with HarmonyOS, the operating system created directly in-house.
