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.

But tsmc also has 0.35 um bicmos with sige, is it that bad? Cross-strait has ups and downs. Right now there is heavy attention on who is involved with China.

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