The US is to increase restrictions on Huawei to try to cut off all access to American technology for the Chinese company.
Huawei’s access to US components and technology, including Google’s music and other smartphone services, was cut off last year.
Those penalties were tightened in May when the White House barred vendors worldwide from using US technology to produce components for Huawei.
The Commerce Department said the extra restrictions were needed because Huawei has “continuously tried to evade” the earlier sanctions by using technology supplied by third parties.
The new rule is designed to block Huawei’s access to commercially available chips made with tools acquired from the US.
