Huawei's own Kirin processors that are used in its smartphones rely on ARM's chip architecture designs.
The UK's ARM has reportedly become the latest company to suspend dealings with Huawei after the United States government hit the Chinese equipment maker with trade sanctions last week.
It's yet another significant blow for Huawei, which has already been barred from doing business with Google LLC and various chipmakers including Intel Corp. and Qualcomm Technologies Inc.
"ARM is complying with the latest restrictions set forth by the USA government and is having ongoing conversations with the appropriate USA government agencies to ensure we remain compliant", an ARM spokesman said in a statement.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange facing more charges from United States prosecutors
Julian Assange is no journalist, this is made plain by the totality of his conduct as alleged in the indictment. The charges were approved by a grand jury and drastically increase the legal fight that lies ahead for Assange.
Despite the temporary reprieve, Huawei told CNBC on Thursday that its own operating system could be ready in China by fall 2019 if it can't use Google and Microsoft. After all, Trump's ban is only set to impact Huawei's relations with American companies or, in Arm's case, companies whose products contain "US original technology".
