The United States has quietly tightened export restrictions on chip equipment to China: 14nm and below are banned, or spread to TSMC
Bloomberg reported on July 30 that Lam Research and KLA, two U.S. chip equipment companies, have confirmed that the U.S. crackdown on Chinese chips has expanded from 10nm to 14nm, and the new regulations will affect the scope. It may not be limited to SMIC, but also includes other chip manufacturing companies investing and operating in China, such as TSMC in Taiwan. Wallace, Klei’s president and chief executive, said the company had received a notice from the U.S. Department of Commerce asking them not to supply China with equipment used in chip manufacturing at 14 nanometers and below.
In the past two weeks or so, all U.S. equipment makers have received letters from the U.S. Commerce Department asking them not to supply China with equipment used to make chips of 14 nanometers or less, according to people familiar with the matter. The remarks of Fanlin and Ke Lei are only the earliest disclosed concrete examples of the further suppression of China’s chip industry by the United States.
Bloomberg recently reported that the United States is pushing hard for allies such as the Netherlands and Japan to ban ASML and Nikon from selling to China the mainstream technology necessary to make most of the world’s chips. The new rules cover a wider range of semiconductors across many industries and are likely to affect many more companies than the usual restrictions on SMIC.
It is reported that the United States has previously prohibited the export of chip equipment of 10nm and below technology to SMIC without permission, but has not yet explicitly restricted the export of chip equipment of 14nm and below technology.
“Second Uncle Coin Crash” topped the hot search list, and the issuer ran away after being accused of defrauding $1.3 million
Recently, a video “Three days back to the village, the second uncle cured my mental internal friction” became popular on the Internet, followed by the release of a virtual currency called second uncle coin (SUC).

Yuan Renminbi. The current price of the token SUC is only $0.0000000004682, and the price has dropped by 99.7%.
But soon second uncle dao responded to the remarks about running away, saying: “The team has not Rugpull nor withdrawn from the pool. Where is the so-called expert Twitter, can you show me the way?” At noon on July 31, the entry “Er Jiu Coin Collapse” once rushed to the top of the hot search list, attracting the attention of netizens. At present, the digital currency trading website has been unable to query the second uncle coin through internal search, but it can still directly access the relevant interface through Google Chrome.

Tesla responds to the owner’s drink and the co-pilot using the auto-assisted driving function to hit the street lights: the main driver’s seat has gravity sensing
On July 31, according to the Southern Metropolis Daily, on the evening of July 29, a traffic accident occurred near Fudi in the Xixi Wetland Scenic Spot in Hangzhou, Zhejiang.

While driving, the vehicle ran off the road, knocked over a light pole and hit a roadside seat.
Regarding whether the owner can sit in the passenger seat to activate the autopilot function, Tesla responded: “According to Tesla’s gravity sensing settings, the vehicle cannot be started without a person sitting in the main driver’s seat.” Tesla personnel noticed that someone on the Internet activated the automatic assisted driving function by placing heavy objects on the main driver’s seat and other extreme methods. In this regard, the officer said: “We do not recommend doing this, because when the car enters automatic assisted driving, if the vehicle has an accident, it is still the person’s full responsibility, and according to the relevant provisions of the “Road Traffic Safety Law”, the driver should be in the vehicle. in the driver’s seat”.
In addition, Tesla said that the standard basic version of the automatic driving assistance system enabled by Tesla includes four functions, namely, keeping the center of the lane, keeping the distance from the car in front, following the car, cruise control and lane assist steering. , all require human intervention to observe the surrounding road conditions, and this function is not suitable for all road sections, and must have clearly marked road sections before it can be used.

SpaceX: Working with the astronomy community to reduce the brightness of Starlink satellites
On July 31, SpaceX released a document titled “Brightness Mitigation Best Practices for Satellite Operators,” outlining its work with the astronomy community to reduce light pollution and reduce the brightness of Starlink satellites. SpaceX noted that by working together, it has identified and mitigated key causes of satellite brightness. The company is working to make the satellite “invisible to the naked eye” at its standard operating altitude.
According to reports, SpaceX has strengthened the mirror design on its Starlink satellites to avoid diffuse reflection of light. SpaceX also points out that not all materials are highly reflective, and some can absorb or make reflected light less bright. In addition, SpaceX has also used designs such as sun visors and radio frequency transparent mirror films to reduce the problem of sunlight scattering. In addition to this, SpaceX has also developed RF clear mirror films as an alternative to sun visors. The film scatters most of the sunlight away from the earth. SpaceX says it has been improving its mirror coatings to reduce the amount of light reflected back to Earth.
Compared to the first-generation satellites, SpaceX has also improved the support material between its batteries. Simply put, change the white material to a dark red material. The downside is that dimming the material increases the temperature of the solar array, which reduces performance. (IT House)

U.S. Department of Commerce: Will limit the scale of government subsidies to chip companies
According to a Reuters report on July 30, the U.S. Department of Commerce said it would limit the scale of government subsidies for semiconductor manufacturing, and would not allow companies to use funds to “bottom out.” The Commerce Department told local chip companies that subsidies would be “no more than the amount generated to ensure that projects operate within the United States,” adding that the department would prevent “competitive subsidies between states and localities.”
The Commerce Department also pledged to prioritize among subsidies companies that “commit to invest in the development of the domestic semiconductor industry in the future” over companies that engage in share buybacks. The legislation does not prohibit companies receiving government funding from repurchasing stock, but it prohibits the use of subsidized funds for buybacks.
NASA accuses China of not sharing information on the wreckage of Chang 5B
On the 30th local time, NASA administrator Nielsen criticized China for not sharing the details of the rocket crash as irresponsible and dangerous. According to The New York Times, Nielsen said that all countries should try to share this type of information to accurately predict potential debris impact risks, especially heavy vehicles like the Long March 5B, which have significant life and Risk of property damage.
The official platform of the China Manned Space Engineering Office’s WeChat public account “China Manned Spaceflight” announced on the 31st that at about 0:55 that day, the wreckage of the last stage of the Long March 5B Yaosan carrier rocket had re-entered the atmosphere, and the landing area was located in the east longitude 119.0°, the surrounding sea area at 9.1° north latitude, most of the devices are ablated and destroyed during the re-entry process.
