Well, so far China can barely handle North Korea, let alone redesigning the world.

This is a new dawn and it is telling us the new global redesign as China becomes more influential.

Welcome to the new arms race. It will be a tough road as China becomes bigger and more influential in the world. All will be redesigned.

I bet same reason as US's alaska oil field. It's dirty and unfriendly to enviorment. US used to dig it's own oil but now prefers imports.

Some additional diversity in sources is very much welcomed in the industry, and helping Mongolia develop and grow is probably an excellent tactic, especially given their proximity to China.

I dont know why China wanted to curb the exports. Many countries lost their confidence in China and They lost the business.

I agree that we should mine our own minerals in the US first, but the labor cost will more than offset importing from another country. This is the same principle as the outsourcing of many jobs. It's just a business decision.

I think companies can no longer rely on any particular country especially china which is acting like big boss in this particular case, and its better to diversify their partnership with other countries as well. What happened to Japans plan of recycling the Rare earth elements ? Is it not yeilding any results ?

What a great idea. I wonder how many other countries have similar offerings of rare earth minerals? If I understand correctly, the US has rare earth minerals. I would suggest that the US take advantage of our resources and reopen the mines and start refining/production on our own. This would provide us with the needed materials and needed exports (if enough are here).

Mongolians and Japanese have historical bonds. Lots of mongolians are localized in Japan, in Hokkaido island u can meet with them everywhere. Of couse this makes sense to make connection to overcome china. Besides i dont think Toshiba will be willing to add considerable value of Mongolia's future growth. Its all about business. Mongolia is momently 1 of the worlds poorest country. Cheap work power, land Of course for japan good fishing. The real rare-earth source is neither china or mongolia. Its Kazakhistan where almost all periodic table can be found. Who has the superior connection with kazakh authorities?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
