US lawmakers press Biden for plans on Chinese use of open chip technology

A wider bipartisan group of U.S. lawmakers is asking the Biden administration about its plans to respond to China’s rising use of RISC-V chip design technology after Reuters last month reported on growing concerns about it in both houses of Congress.


Now, a broader group of 18 lawmakers that includes five Democrats is asking the Biden administration for how it plans to prevent China “from achieving dominance in … RISC-V technology and leveraging that dominance at the expense of U.S. national and economic security,” according to a letter the group sent to Raimondo and seen by Reuters.

A rather shortsighted take, and without even looking I wouldn’t be surprised if some of these lawmakers have chip factories or whatever in their districts.
