AKHAN cooperates with US federal probe into alleged theft of IP by Huawei

AKHAN Semiconductor Inc of Gurnee, IL, USA – which was founded in 2013 and specializes in the fabrication and application of lab-grown, electronics-grade diamond as functional semiconductors – says that it recently cooperated with a US federal investigation into what appears to be a theft of its intellectual property by Huawei Technologies Co Ltd.

AKHAN says that, when it sent its proprietary Miraj Diamond technology to Huawei pursuant to an agreement, it expected that Huawei would abide by the agreement and that its material would be returned unharmed. Unfortunately, AKHAN believes that Huawei destroyed its product, shipped it to China without authorization, subjected it to tests that it was not authorized to conduct, and returned most of the product in pieces. AKHAN still has not recovered all of the product from Huawei, despite repeated written and oral requests and inquiries.

AKHAN says that it takes seriously any unlawful use of its technology, and that the theft of any assets, attempted or successful, will be not be tolerated. The firm will continue to cooperate with law enforcement and work towards an expedient resolution to the matter. Given the threat that Huawei’s apparent theft poses to its shareholders, employees and customers – and the potential loss to US jobs, revenue and other projected economic impact – AKHAN is considering all legal remedies available, and will work with the involved parties to make public any relevant information to all stakeholders.
