Version 7.0 of TracePro 7.0 increases ray-tracing speed up to 10 times over the previous version by using new multithreading algorithms for all cores in Intel or AMD multicore CPUs. This release also features a new interactive optimizer, rearrangeable system tree, new Reptile geometries, and irradiance options.
Lambda Research Corporation Announces the Release of TracePro 7.0, Optomechanical Design Software with multi-threading capability
Littleton, Massachusetts – September 30, 2010 – TracePro 7.0 increases raytracing speed up to 10 times over our 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.
Based in Littleton, Mass., Lambda Research Corporation was founded in 1992 and is a privately held company. Lambda is an industry leader in stray light analysis, illumination system design and analysis, and custom software development. Lambda Research Corporation publishes TracePro® software for optomechanical modeling and OSLO® software for optical design.
