University of Xiamen Mao who was an associate professor of, from the 2018 autumn University of Texas at Arlington School of Hong Jiang professor of laboratory belongs as a postdoctoral fellow in. Prof. Jiang has researched computer system architecture, big data, cloud computing, etc., and also got backup from Huawei's US subsidiary Futurewei's data center.

The reason for this is that Huawei filed a civil lawsuit in December 2017 for 'stealing trade secrets' against California startup CNEX Lab and its former employee, Yiren Haung. Huawei, former engineering manager at Futurewei, claims that he left the company and started working with CNEX Lab three days later.

In response to this, CNEX Lab insisted that Mr. Mao diverted the SSD control board developed by CNEX Lab for research to Huawei. In a civil trial between Huawei and CNEX Lab, Mao's board flow itself was recognized by the jury, but it did not significantly affect the flow of the trial, “Huang violated the employment contract. But Huawei did not suffer much damage from it. '
