China is betting on new “chiplet” technology to make its semiconductor industry more self-sufficient as it faces ongoing U.S. sanctions blocking the import of certain materials and machines to make the most advanced chips.

The tech is cheaper to manufacture, and can potentially achieve similar levels of computing power to a regular chip.
