Cloud native EDA tools & pre-optimized hardware platforms
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today announced the latest release of its RSoft™ Photonic Component Design Suite, the company's industry-leading software for the design of photonic devices and components used in optical communications, optoelectronics and semiconductor manufacturing. Version 2016.03 of the Synopsys RSoft Photonic Component Design Suite streamlines the design of LEDs, OLEDs and displays, with faster, more rigorous simulation techniques for comprehensive modeling of nano-textured optical structures. The new capabilities can help designers gain an in-depth understanding of the underlying physics of photonic devices as well as insights into how they can increase device performance.
"The latest release of the RSoft Photonic Component Design Suite enables advanced design flows for modeling optical surface scattering properties in nanotechnology applications, helping designers optimize device efficiency and satisfy stringent performance, size and cost requirements," said George Bayz, vice president and general manager of Synopsys' Optical Solutions Group.
Enhanced Design of LEDs, OLEDs and Displays Using Mixed-Level Simulation
The RSoft Photonic Component Design Suite includes enhancements to its Bidirectional Scattering Distribution Function (BSDF) capabilities for the design and optimization of complex optical structures used in LEDs, OLEDs and displays. BSDF capabilities provide a highly accurate method for modeling optical surface scattering properties, and the enhancements significantly speed BSDF calculations and simulations as well as enable users to visualize BSDF file contents. RSoft BSDF files can be imported into Synopsys' LightTools® illumination design software to facilitate the design of lighting systems with small-feature, diffractive optical structures. The unique, mixed-level simulation approach between the RSoft products and LightTools helps optical designers improve the design of LEDs, OLEDs and nano-textured displays to enhance light extraction efficiency, beam shaping and color tuning.
The RSoft BSDF enhancements include:
