​​Noesis Solutions and Cybernet Systems announce availability of Synopsys LightTools interface for Optimus

Noesis Solutions and Cybernet Systems announce the availability of an Optimus interface for LightTools®, the design software for illumination applications developed by Synopsys, Inc.

LightTools is a leading 3D optical engineering and design software used to simulate illumination optics products including LED lighting systems, LCD backlights, projectors, and interior and exterior automotive lighting. LightTools has 3D CAD functionality, which allows evaluation models to be developed easily.

The Optimus software suite from Noesis Solutions is a renowned solution for design optimization and process integration. It enables manufacturers to identify superior product designs by managing a parametric simulation campaign using simulation software such as LightTools. Optimus users typically perform Design of Experiments (DOE) to define a virtual experiment plan that acquires the most relevant design information possible with minimum simulation effort. They then use this information set to explore the design improvement potential using Response Surface Modeling (RSM) methods, or to identify an optimized product design.

Optimus’ powerful Open Access technology enables interaction with third-party software programs such as LightTools. A wrapper tool provides an efficient way to wrap the parameterization and the command line of the software. Subsequently, Optimus creates the workflow, launches the virtual experiments and post-processes their results.

By combining and utilizing Optimus and LightTools – both distributed and supported by Cybernet Systems Co., Ltd. – optical engineers are able to efficiently optimize innovative optical system solutions. The integration and automation of the simulation process flow opens up great opportunity to drastically advance illumination optics functionality and reduce product development turnaround time. The LightTools interface for Optimus has been developed and made available by Cybernet Systems.
