US curbs on TSMC ex-engineer Liang ‘won’t hurt SMIC’

The US government's decision to impose export restrictions on former TSMC engineer Liang Meng-Su is not expected to significantly impact SMIC (Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation). Liang, who joined SMIC after leaving TSMC, was put on the US Entity List over concerns about his knowledge transfer. Despite Liang's expertise in semiconductor technology, experts suggest that SMIC has already made substantial advancements, reducing its reliance on foreign talent. Additionally, the Chinese chipmaker has been investing heavily in research and development to enhance its self-sufficiency in semiconductor production. While the restrictions raise tensions in the tech sector, SMIC appears poised to weather the storm.
