“The Netherlands” is following the United States, preparing to limit the export of advanced chip makers to China.

“Lichi Sgrenimahcher” Minister of Trade It was revealed in a letter to the publisher on Wednesday (March 8) that “the measures to limit the export of chips can affect the technologies that are essential to the production cycle.semiconductor Netherlands consider national security and basic international security and that this technology should be harnessed as soon as possible.”

Machine Lithography Use a laser to etch designs onto silicon sheets. which is part of the microchip manufacturing process And the Dutch government had prevented ASML from exporting advanced chip-making equipment to China since 2019.

In addition, the United States pushed the Netherlands andJapanSimilar restrictions are also enabled.
