I think some ARM processors do? Not sure if the arm core that
allwinner chip uses does though. Anyway, the SoC probably uses
so called 'intellectual property' from different designers
including americunt ones. And there are other components on the
board of course.
Point being, it seems hard, even for the chinese govt, to know
for sure that the system isn't backdoored by many of the
western scum 'players' in the 'industry'.
