Chip designer Arm told employees in a memo that it’s ending its business dealings with Huawei, the BBC reported Wednesday.

UK-based Arm, whose designs form the foundation of processors in most mobile devices, is suspending “all active contracts, support entitlements, and any pending engagements” with the embattled Chinese phone maker following President Donald Trump’s ban last week.

Arm confirmed to CNET via email that it’s “complying with all of the latest regulations set forth by the U.S. government” but didn’t have further comment. Huawei didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
