The Chinks produce pretty OK equipment. Comparable to Russian industry staple but not their bleeding edge technologies. Main problem for them was technology gap with Western countries which they were bridging using espionage and cyber warfare. After Trump made their life miserable and mass arresting Obama era moles, situation has become very difficult for them.I wouldnt think so..
Considering that they've been producing flanker versions for quite a while now on their own, they are quite adept at upto 4th gen avionics.
5th gen avionics is anybody's guess. But the integration of the variety of control surfaces like high offset angle canards, all moving vertical stabs etc on J20 mean that they do have capability to produce some high quality avionics.
