Biden to Formalize Curbs on Chip Exports to China, Reuters Says

The Biden administration plans to broaden curbs on US shipments of semiconductors for artificial intelligence and chipmaking tools to China, Reuters reported, citing unidentified people familiar with the matter.

The Commerce Department planned to publish new regulations based on restrictions communicated in letters to KLA Corp., Lam Research Corp. and Applied Materials Inc. The agency banned them from exporting chipmaking equipment to factories in China that produce 14-nanometer or more advanced semiconductors, unless the sellers obtain licenses, Bloomberg News reported in July.
