Lambda Research Corporation to Demonstrate TracePro 7.8 at Lightfair 2016

Littleton, MA, USA – Lambda Research Corporation, the leading designer and manufacturer of illumination and optical design software, announces its participation in the Lightfair International Conference and Expo at San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA from April 26-28. In addition, demonstrations of the latest release of TracePro, version 7.8, will be available. Design engineers, researchers, and students attending the show are encouraged to bring their latest projects by the booth (#4347) and experience a real-time demo using their designs. In addition, the company will be offering live demonstrations of the ScatterMaster ScatterScope 4 scatterometer and offering two free BSDF measurements (a $2,000 value) using the ScatterScope 4 at the show. Bring your measurement samples to Lightfair for free BSDF measurements.

Updated features in TracePro v7.8 include a final version of the Lighting Toolkit, new Path Sort Filtering, and new settings for all True Color plots. The Lighting Toolkit gives TracePro users a full-featured capability to analyze automotive lighting systems, including headlights/headlamps; tail, warning, and marker lamps; as well as outdoor and indoor luminaires. The Lighting Toolkit provides visualization tools and regulation tables to certify that simulated results meet the requirements of the lighting and automotive standards, and provides pass/fail criteria for ECE, SAE, IESNA, and FMVSS regulations.

The Path Sort Filtering in TracePro v7.8 allows users to apply a Boolean filter to specify the exact paths by which rays propagate through the system. Users can select the exact ray path they wish to investigate by building a filter, surface by surface, that they wish to investigate. After building the filter the user can apply it to visualize each ray path along with its corresponding irradiance map on the target surface. Lastly, all True Color plots in TracePro now have settings for Brightness, Contrast, and Gamma, including Irradiance/Illuminance, 3D Irradiance/Illuminance, and Luminance Maps.

The ScatterScope 4 by ScatterMaster is a new concept in high-speed scatter measurement metrology. It features an easy-to-use interface in a portable package that delivers full hemispherical BSDF measurements in a few minutes. Designed by a leading team of scatter experts including renown Dr. John Stover, this device offers unparalleled performance with accurate measurement in 1/10 the time that current industrial scatterometers take for in-plane measurements.

TracePro v7.8 further enhances the most powerful and sophisticated illumination design software available for LED implementation in lamps and luminaires. TracePro streamlines the prototype-to-manufacturing process by combining an intuitive 3D CAD interface, superior ray tracing performance, advanced utilities, and seamless interoperability with other mechanical design programs.
