According to foreign media reports, the U.S. Department of Commerce has launched an investigation into the large hard disk manufacturer Seagate, saying that Seagate may violate the Huawei sanctions and is suspected of shipping the hard disk drive to Huawei. According to reports, the controller chip in the hard disk is installed. There are detectors.

The U.S. Department of Commerce imposed severe sanctions on Huawei in August last year to prevent China's Huawei from bypassing U.S. export controls in order to obtain U.S. technology development or production of electronic components.

Although under the US Department of Commerce's ban, companies can still request special export licenses. For example, Western Digital Corporation has applied for a license to sell disk drives and solid state drives to Huawei.

In addition, Seagate Finance Chief Gianluca Romano said at the Deutsche Bank Investment Conference last September that there is no need to restrict Huawei or other Chinese customers in terms of sustainable development.

Seagate is one of the world's largest hard disk manufacturers, and its sales in the field of traditional hard disk drives (HDD) account for 80% of the global market.

In response, the U.S. Department of Commerce has begun investigating Seagate. Seagate only stated that the company complied with the law, including export controls, but did not respond to the incident.
