Synopsys Delivers Optical Design IP Protection in Latest Release CODE V 11.5


We are pleased to announce the availability of CODE V version 11.5, Synopsys’ industry-standard optical design software, with smart tools to design better solutions faster. This release introduces the CODE V Hidden Lens Module, which makes it easy to collaborate with customers, subcontractors, and suppliers while protecting the valuable intellectual property (IP) behind the lens design. The release also expands CODE V’s built-in intelligence with new lens optimization capabilities, enhanced AI-optimized glass selection, and fast evaluations of freeform surface performance.
“The new Hidden Lens Module in CODE V allows seamless collaboration between optical designers and fabricators to support the entire design-to-manufacturing process while protecting IP,” said Stuart David, vice president of engineering in Synopsys’ Optical Solutions Group. “We’ve added sophisticated features to enable CODE V users to optimize their systems faster and more flexibly. We’ve also made it easier for designers to evaluate performance of freeform optics often used in AR/VR, automotive, and aerospace applications.”
