Introducing our new Synopsys Optical and Photonic Solutions YouTube channel, featuring brief video tutorials and informative overviews of Synopsys design tools. If you’re short on time, but need to learn new features fast, bookmark this channel for the latest about our optical design software.
Join us for this month’s CODE V and LightTools Tech Talks. Read the round-up in this blog entry.
The Synopsys Optical Solutions Group invites you to participate in its Robert S. Hilbert Memorial Optical Design Competition, which recognizes excellence in optical design projects completed by students. You’ll have a chance to win a portion of a $10,000 prize. Entries are due on June 15, 2020.
The Synopsys Optical Solutions Group is proud to announce our new series of online tech talks. We’ve pulled together a great lineup featuring product training and optical design case studies. Register today for any or all of these talks!
With many of us working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to forgo travel, trips, attending trade shows, and in-person training. Many trade shows have been cancelled or postponed. Connecting with people has been challenging, and we have been relying on technology and the internet to get in touch with colleagues. So, as you settle in at your home office, we have made a way for you to connect with us and make the most of your time working from home. Here are some training resources and upcoming webinars. Also, connect with us on social media.
The LucidDrive tool – part of the LucidShape product family — provides the ability to perform virtual night-driving simulations that generate realistic lighting scenes in real time. Designers can quickly and accurately evaluate beam patterns for exterior automotive lighting applications on the road, traffic signs, and surroundings prior to expensive fabrication and testing.
Synopsys and Analog Photonics are pleased to announce that a new, sign-off ready process design kit (PDK) based on Analog Photonics’ silicon photonics (SiP) design library is now available for the Synopsys PIC Design Suite, which includes the OptSim Circuit and OptoDesigner tools complemented with Synopsys’ physical verification solution IC Validator.
Dr. Aaron Bauer of the University of Rochester is the 2020 recipient of the Kevin P. Thompson Optical Design Innovator Award, which recognizes significant contributions to lens design, optical engineering, or metrology. The award was established in memory of Kevin Thompson, who was Group Director of the Synopsys Optical Engineering Services team. We interviewed Dr. Bauer to learn how he became interested in optics, his current research projects, and his future goals.
LightTools version 9.0, now available, introduces valuable new tools to help optical engineers and stray light analysts pinpoint and correct stray light issues early in the product design process, saving time and money.
Read a recap on the DVN Lighting/ADAS Workshop at the Hilton Airport Hotel in Munich, Germany, hosted by Driving Vision News (DVN) on January 28-29, 2020. DVN workshops provide opportunities for the global automotive lighting community to gather and talk about industry trends and innovations. This year, DVN welcomed 350 attendees to the conference with a focus on adaptive headlights and rear lights for premium and generalist cars.
Optical and photonic design topics, including software highlights, commentary on trends, current events, and conferences.
