Lambda Research Corp. Releases TracePro 7.0, Optomechanical Design Software with Multi-Threading Capability

TracePro 7.0 increases raytracing speed up to 10 times over the 6.0 version using new multi-threading algorithms. This release also features a new interactive optimizer, rearrangeable system tree, new Reptile™ geometries and irradiance options.

TracePro 7.0 uses multi-threaded algorithms to raytrace on all the cores in Intel or AMD multi-core CPUs. Simulations done on a Dual Quad core computer show raytracing improvement of up to 10 times over previous releases when simulating LED, lighting, display, biomedical and aerospace systems.

The new interactive optimizer is specifically designed for non-sequential design on LED and illumination systems. The optimizer features a sketch utility for quick design entry, interactive raytrace for design verification, downhill simplex optimizer with interactive entry of target specifications. 
Other new features include a re-arrangeable system tree to create assemblies and standard drag and drop operations to arrange parts and assemblies. Two new irradiance options have been added including a new rainbow palette and normalization for stray light point source transmittance calculations. TracePro 7.0 also adds two new RepTile geometries, a flattened and pointed cone for the backlight display simulation.
