On June 24, the U.S. added several more Chinese organizations to its Entity List, effectively barring them from doing business with any American company.

The list includes (full list of companies here.):

  • Sugon: a leading supercomputer developer in China. Three of the other companies included in the list are owned by Sugon.
  • Wuxi Jiangnan Institude of Computing Technology: a research institute owned by the People's Liberation Army, according to the Federal Register.

Barring the companies and institute from purchasing U.S. technology likely means that they'll lose access to Intel and Nvidia chips, among others.
