As per reports, this action arrives after the US government recently added seven new Chinese supercomputing-based entities to its trade blacklist.

“The prices of chips used in these home appliances are usually less sophisticated and advanced in comparison to the ones used in PCs and smartphones, but the prices of these chips may rise due to worldwide shortage.”
