Chips wars

I was reading this news recently about Huaewi capability of building 14nm chips.

Today, the EDA (Electronic Design Automation) market is largely controlled by three companies: California-based Synopsys and Cadence, as well as Germany's Siemens. 

I wonder, are the export controls good long term? Maybe the solution is worse than the illness…

And based on that, I learned that ASML is the biggest valued company in Europe!

As well, there is a book about “chip wars” that I want to read at some point.
