“As an optical design and engineering firm that specializes in custom precision systems, we are continuously challenged with new and demanding projects. We appreciate new features in CODE V that help us analyze, optimize, and tolerance optical systems to get into production quickly. The View Apertures (VAP) feature has been helpful in analyzing non-rotationally symmetric systems with complex apertures in both imaging and beam shaping. VAP has also been very helpful for communications between our optics and mechanics teams, as well as with our customers and suppliers.”
--Andrés Cifuentes, chief executive officer of ASE Optics Europe
“The CODE V Image Simulation feature provides a convenient method for evaluating optical systems that are used in unconventional imaging environments, such as automotive surround, 3D (stereo) imaging or hyper-hemispheric imaging. We have used these tools to develop hyper-hemispheric designs and have found them to be effective in evaluating synthetic target imagery. Rather than relying on MTF and PSF plots, the diffraction-based Image Simulation helps bridge the gap between perception and engineering metrics for our clients."
--Dr. John Tamkin, chief executive officer and chief technology officer of Imaging Insights LLC
"We rely on the speed, stability and flexibility of CODE V's optimization capabilities to develop sophisticated optical systems. With its global optimization features, its ability to control constraints exactly, and an interface that allows us to set up user-defined merit functions quickly and easily, CODE V gives us ultimate design freedom."
