NOVEMBER 7, 2007 -- Optiwave Systems Inc. (search for Optiwave), provider of optical component and system design tools, today announced the immediate availability of OptiBPM 9.0, the latest version of its waveguide optics design suite. According to the company, this release delivers a new integrated simulator dedicated to the design of electro-optic devices in arbitrary materials.
"OptiBPM 9.0 is a pioneering effort in refining how simulation design tools are used by engineers working on the design of complex electro-optic devices," contends Dr. Steven Dods, product manager. "Sophisticated electro-optic devices employing several electro-optic materials in arbitrary orientations can now be modeled accurately in one flexible simulation environment."
Additional new features in OptiBPM 9.0 include a simplified method of creating slanted waveguides in the design environment, 3D path monitoring, and a robust bi-directional data interface with ZEMAX, the popular lens design tool.
"We are pleased to see that OptiBPM continues to be the popular choice by optical device engineers who require a comprehensive simulation design solution," adds Jan Jakubczyk, president and CEO of Optiwave. "It's not often you see a commercially available design suite that has been on the market for over a decade [experience] continued user growth. We thank our valued international base of users for making Optiwave their first choice."
