MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today announced version 11.3 of its CODE V® optical design software, which introduces new capabilities that empower designers to create, simulate, and visualize optomechanical systems faster and more efficiently than ever. Highlights include:
The enhanced CAD modeling capabilities in CODE V help users visualize volume constraints, define complex aperture shapes for blocking and obstructing rays, easily create complex prism geometries, and much more. These capabilities can also be useful for designing and visualizing unusual surface shapes, such as those used in aerospace and automotive applications, including heads-up displays (HUDs).
"The CAD visualization feature in CODE V has proven to be a useful tool for viewing multiple subsystems simultaneously, as well as comparing my current optical layout to that of a previous revision," said Dr. Anthony Vella, optical engineer at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. "It has allowed me to visualize the system throughout the design process before exporting the final optical model to CAD software."
"Instrument accommodation into a satellite is a primary objective with limited freedom," said Dr. Sergio Mottini, optical engineer at Thales Alenia Space. "In the past, I've needed assistance from CAD specialists to validate the compatibility of my optical designs with mechanical configurations. CODE V's CAD capability provides a single tool to perform this validation and save time."
"CODE V is expertly developed, tested, and supported," said Stuart David, group director of applications engineering in Synopsys' Optical Solutions Group. "We are proud to empower our customers to build their best optical systems with software that delivers unmatched technical depth and accuracy. With CODE V 11.3, we have extended our technical leadership with new pre-built design specifications and freeform surface types, as well as new CAD prototyping features that streamline optical design and optomechanical layout processes."
