TracePro 7.0, the new optomechanical design software unveiled
by Lambda Research Corp., uses multithreading algorithms to increase ray tracing
speeds by up to 10 times compared with the earlier 6.0 version. The updated software,
which is compatible with Intel and AMD multicore central processing units, also
features a new interactive optimizer, a rearrangeable system tree, new RepTile geometries
and irradiance options. Simulations done on a dual-quad core computer show increased
speeds when simulating LED, lighting, display, biomedical and aerospace systems.
The new interactive optimizer is configured for nonsequential design on LED and
illumination systems. It features a sketch utility for quick design entry, interactive
ray trace for design verification, and a downhill simplex optimizer with interactive
entry of target specifications.
