According to a recent report by Reuters, the Biden administration is planning to broaden its curbs on US shipments of semiconductors used for artificial intelligence and chip-making tools to China next month.

The US Commerce department is expected to publish the new regulations based on the restrictions that were earlier communicated to three US companies including Applied Materials, KLA, and Lam Research.
