SweetLeaf announced as first Founding Member of Sugarwise Alliance

The world's most trusted stevia brand has been announced as the first Founding Partner of Sugarwise.

PASADENA, Calif., June 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SweetLeaf belongs to the parent group Wisdom Natural Brands, founded by James A. May, known around the world as the 'Father of Stevia'. He realized the potential for a better-for- you sugar substitute with the sweet stevia leaves, and in 1982, Mr. May introduced stevia to the US for the first time.

SweetLeaf is the best-selling stevia brand in the natural food marketplace; a zero-calorie, zero-carb, no sugar, non-glycaemic response sweetener made from sustainably sourced plants with 30 times the sweetening power of sugar.

Sugarwise's Chief Scientist, Vinicius Ferreira explains: "One of the main challenges of reformulation is recreating the sweetness profile of high-sugar foods with low-calorie alternatives. SweetLeaf is hitting this challenge out of the park with its impressively wide range of products that are helping manufacturers and individuals create great-tasting, Sugarwise recipes."

The first Sugarwise accredited recipe book "Sugar Free" will be available on shelf and online mid-July. It will feature some of the SweetLeaf products that will be certified sugar-free by Sugarwise, and carry the coveted Sugarwise marque.

Sugarwise fully supports the use of calorie-free, sugar-free, carb-free SweetLeaf stevia to reduce sugar intake and regulate weight. SweetLeaf is the first brand to be invited to enter into the Sugarwise Founding Partnership, an alliance which will be made up of no more than 12 members. Only one other invitation has so far been extended, to a Californian company.

Rend Platings, founder of Sugarwise, comments: 'I'm delighted that Sugarwise and SweetLeaf are partnering to advocate like-for-like swaps in the strategy to combat obesity. You don't have to deny your sweet tooth to stay healthy – SweetLeaf means you can enjoy sweet-tasting foods and drinks, absolutely guilt-free!' 

Brian Hall, Global Brand Manager of SweetLeaf® adds, 'We are thrilled to support the Sugarwise mission. Sugarwise is one of the most trusted sources for nutrition information on free sugar, backed by a scientific approach. We feel honoured to meet their standards and share in this important cause affecting billions of people around the world.'

SweetLeaf and Sugarwise will be exhibiting together at the upcoming Eat Smart Show in London Olympia on the 7th-9th July. Sugarwise's next Founding Members will be announced at upcoming Parliamentary Summits in the UK and EU in September.

Anritsu Company Introduces High-performance BERT To Verify Next-generation High-speed Interface Designs

- Signal Quality Analyzer MP1900A Supports Simultaneous Multi-channel Measurements, PAM4 BER Tests, and PCI Express Link Negotiation -

RICHARDSON, Texas, June 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Anritsu Company introduces the Signal Quality Analyzer (SQA) MP1900A BERT, a versatile solution that can measure next-generation PCI Express Gen 4 and Gen 5 buses, as well as the latest 400 GbE/200 GbE Ethernet networks. With comprehensive interface support, the MP1900A is an all-in-one solution that accurately measures next-generation high-speed electronic and optical devices, and optical transceivers used in high-end servers, communications equipment and optical transceivers/modules, including those for M2M and IoT applications.

The SQA MP1900A high-performance Bit Error Rate Testers (BERTs) can accurately evaluate high-speed interface designs during the early development stage. Its all-in-one, highly extendible platform can measure performance of network-side interfaces, such as 400 GbE, 200 GbE, and 100 GbE, as well as internal PCI Express bus interfaces, to help speed design evaluation times and lower cost-of-test.

Engineers will have a high degree of measurement confidence, as the SQA MP1900A BERT has best-in-class performance. The built-in Pulse Pattern Generator (PPG) has industry best intrinsic jitter of typically 115 fs rms, as well as typical Tr/Tf of 12 ps. Total peak-to-peak jitter is typically 6 ps max. and typical input sensitivity of the internal Error Detector (ED) is 15 mV.

Complementing the high performance are multiple features that improve accuracy and efficiency. A unique Link Negotiation Function supporting high-speed digital interface standards is used to connect the MP1900A to the DUT for improved bus interface evaluation. Engineers can use the Function to conduct PCI Express Gen 4 and Gen 5 tests, LTSSM status analysis, jitter generation, and CM/DM noise injection. A Jitter Measurement Function evaluates signal integrity, while a 10Tap Emphasis Function and Equalizer Function can be used to characterize test signals according to transmission path loss.

The SQA MP1900A BERT can also be configured with peripheral equipment for expanded measurement capability. An integrated solution featuring the MP1900A can support generation of 32 Gbaud and 64 Gbaud PAM4 signals required for 200 GbE and 400 GbE measurements, BER measurements, jitter and amplitude noise injection, and emphasis addition, for versatile future-proof standards support.

Simple to operate, the MP1900A has an intuitive GUI that can display block diagrams on the instrument's large touch-panel 12.1" display. Remote commands matching each GUI function can be displayed on-screen to shorten configuration time for automated measurements.
