US bars China’s supercomputer businesses, the institute of the buy American parts

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Commerce Department said on Friday, adding to a large number of Chinese companies and government-owned institution is involved in supercomputing, with the military to achieve the national safety and security “entity list,” which bars them from purchasing U.S. parts and components without the prior approval of the central government.

The export restriction notice, to add to the undertakings and what is the effective trading time is the latest attempt by the Trumpet of the administration is to limit the ability of Chinese companies to gain access to AMERICAN technology, in the midst of an ongoing trade war.

The ministry said that it will add Sugon, Wuxi Jiangnan Institute of Computing Technology, Higon, Chengdu Haiguang, the Integrated Circuit, and in the city of Chengdu Haiguang micro-electronics Technology, along with many of the nicknames of the five entities to the list of worries about military applications of computers, which they are developing.

Wuxi Jiangnan Institute of Computing Technology, and is the property of the 56th Research Institute of the general Staff of China’s People’s Liberation Army, the Ministry of Commerce said, adding that “the mission is to support China’s military modernization.”

The Chinese Embassy in Washington immediately return a request for comment.

In 2015, the Ministry of Trade of China’s National University of Defense Technology (NUDT) on the list because of its use of U.S.-origin multicores, boards, and (co -) processors with the power of super-computers are supposed to be in support of, the nuclear explosive simulation, and military simulation activities.

The Commerce Department said Friday that, since the 2015 NUDT has acquired as much information as to the name, While Guofang Stone, a University with four separate addresses, which is not on the entity list. The department said on Friday it is now adding the Guests Guofang, and four addresses on the list.

The companies are “a significant risk of being or becoming involved in activities contrary to the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States of america,” the Trade Ministry said.

In May, the Home administration will be added to China’s Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, the entity list, and 68 offices in more than two dozen countries.

The world’s two largest economies, have a very rates, in a struggle over the officers of the u.s. to call China’s unfair trade practices.

In the United States of america, China, the European Union, and Japan have all announced plans to build exaflop-capable computers.

In March, a U.S. government-led group, said it is working with chipmaker Intel Corp, and computermaker Cray Inc. to develop and build on the land, it is the fastest computer in 2021, for the conduct of nuclear weapons and other research.

The Department of Energy and the Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois working on a super-computer, named “Aurora” Intel,” the world’s leading provider of data-center chips, and Cray, which specializes in ultra-high-speed machines.

The $500 million contract for the project calls for the companies to have a computer with exaflop performance, that is, being able to perform 1 quintillion, or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 calculations per second.

Earlier this week, Nvidia Corp. (nasdaq: msft), a major chip supplier, supercomputer maker, said it was working with Softbank Holdings Group, which owned the chip firm Arm Holdings, the chips are working with Arm for super-computers.

Ian Buck, vice president of Nvidia’s accelerated computing unit, said that the effort was focused on the European and Japanese customers, rather than for the Chinese communities, which are becoming more and more in the internal potato chips.

“In terms of China, I think they have made it clear that they have an internal accelerator to the processor, as well as the strategy they are pursuing, and that is exactly what they are doing,” He said.
