Synopsys' Optical Solutions Group
Synopsys' Optical Solutions Group, formerly Optical Research Associates (ORA®), is one of the world’s leading developers of optical design and analysis tools -- CODE V® imaging design software and LightTools® illumination design software. The group is also an independent supplier of optical systems design services, with more than 5,000 completed projects in imaging, illumination and optical systems engineering.
In May 2012, Synopsys acquired RSoft Design Group, expanding the company’s portfolio of optical design and analysis software products. With the RSoft™ products, Synopsys has augmented the CODE V and LightTools product lines to provide a full spectrum of photonic and optical design solutions.
In February 2014, Synopsys acquired Brandenburg, maker of the LucidShape line of CAD software for the design of automotive forward, rear and signal lighting and reflectors, as well as for general lighting. In addition to design software, Brandenburg offers LucidDrive for night driving simulation that generates almost photorealistic lighting scenes in real time. Designers use it to quickly and accurately evaluate beam patterns of vehicle headlamps prior to expensive fabrication and testing. Most top-tier car companies and their lighting OEMs use Brandenburg products.
