Version 5.0 of Optical Research Associates' LightTools illumination design and analysis software features shortcuts that increase ray trace speed from four to 60 times, depending on the model. This reduces design-development time and accelerates time to market for all types of luminaries, automotive lighting, and LCD backlights for cell phones, PDAs and laptop computers. User-written macros are added to the program's menus to simplify access, and the macro language has been enhanced for more powerful analysis. A pop-up chart feature permits data lists and spreadsheets to be displayed in a line or surface chart for clarity.
