With CODE V’s Global Synthesis®, you have the ability to solve real-world optical design problems faster and easier than other approaches, such as genetic algorithms or simulated annealing. Because of its unparalleled efficiency, Global Synthesis can be used to help solve complex problems with a large number of variables and many constraints, including zoom lenses. Run times can range from just a few minutes for smaller problems to a few hours or overnight for complex optical systems. In either case, Global Synthesis has demonstrated a remarkable ability to generate multiple solutions, all meeting the required constraints.
Global Synthesis works in three easy steps.
