A walkie-talkie chipset! Company from Chongqing! These all makes me feel the part is designed for military use. It then make sense that the Chinese company give up the large IBM and cross-strait Taiwan.

Several Chinese fabless chip companies use TSMC so I think the decision is more about technology than politics.
