UCLA Professor Faces 200+ Year Sentence for Smuggling Tech to China

Former University of California professor Yi-Chi Shih has been found guilty on 18 federal charges for funneling American military technology to China.

Shih’s co-defendant, Kiet Ahn Mai, already pleaded guilty to smuggling charges in December 2018.The former Los Angeles professor posed as a customer in order to obtain the “monolithic microwave integrated circuits” (MMICs) used in missiles and aircraft on China’s behalf.

I'm suspicious of this article because the term they refer to (MMIC - monolithic microwave integrated circuits) is a generic term referring to tens of thousands of different components which are generally not export restricted. Hams and hobbyists use them by the shovel full.
