Synopsys Announces Release 11.2 of CODE V Optical Design Software


MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today announced version 11.2 of its CODE V® optical design software, which includes enhancements to the software's industry-leading capabilities for the design, analysis, and optimization of superior imaging optics.
CODE V version 11.2 includes new solutions to increase optical engineering productivity, support cost-to-manufacture savings, and give reliable results in less time:
"As an optical design and engineering firm that specializes in custom precision systems, we are continuously challenged with new and demanding projects. We appreciate new features in CODE V that help us analyze, optimize, and tolerance optical systems to get into production quickly," said Andrés Cifuentes, chief executive officer of ASE Optics Europe. "The View Apertures (VAP) feature has been helpful in analyzing non-rotationally symmetric systems with complex apertures in both imaging and beam shaping. VAP has also been very helpful for communications between our optics and mechanics teams, as well as with our customers and suppliers."
"The latest release of CODE V builds on its strengths as the leading optical design software solution for accelerating time-to-market and supporting cost-effective fabrication," said George Bayz, vice president of Synopsys' Optical Solutions Group. "With updated optimization constraints to control lens system manufacturability, the Asphere Writer and 2D-Q freeform surfaces to speed the design of compact optical systems, and improved tools for project validation and communications, CODE V enables optical engineers to increase their productivity and save on manufacturing costs."
