Highlighted features

Signal generator

It is now possible to control the value of a simulation item using a signal generator. The signal generator contains a table with time/value pairs.

Import of measure file creates simulation items for each channel in the measure file that can be simulated (inputs). Values from the measure file are also imported so that you can play back a measured scenario.

Interface to other simulation software

ActiveX support implemented. Makes it possible to read and set values from external software, e.g. Microsoft Excel. There is an example file for this under the examples folder.

Remember input values and settings between simulations without having to save

Simulations can be manually saved as .isa4 files. There is also an automatically saved simulation, that stores the input values and all the settings between the simulations. When launching IQANsimulate, there is an option to select whether to use a saved simulation file or create a new one.

Keyboard shortcut for small input changes

In the simulation group view the arrows are used to select channel. Ctrl+arrows are used to change the value of the selected track bar. Added shift+ctrl+arrows to change values in raw value steps of 1 (smallest step available).

Possible to add channels to simulation group while simulating

You can now drag a channel from the functionality viewer to a simulation group without having to stop the simulation first. There is also a default simulation group, so it is not necessary to first creating a simulation group.

"Set value" function more accessible

Added a small popup below selected channel containing controls for setting values on the channel. Same method used for physical channels and for the "set value" function for stored and adjustable channels.

For more details, see release notes.


How is it possible to press 2 finger push button on md3 with simulator 5.06

Hello, how can I control (press) at the same time the F1 and F4 buttons of an MD3, using the 5.06 simulator. Thank you


Simulator 5.06 no shows software with mc43

claudio 4 months ago in IQANsimulate updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 4 months ago 1

how do for increase timer in software per ECU MC43 with simulator 5.06? Why the simulator 5.06 don't shows the software program with ECU MC43


Simulate Input and Output Statuses

Chris Litwin 2 years ago in IQANsimulate updated 6 months ago 7

Is there a way to set the statuses for inputs and outputs in IQAN Simulate 5? I know I can set COUT channels, but that option is greyed out on all other channels.

Simulate I/O diagnostics cases for HS or LS digital output on MC4X

Fredrik Lorenc 2 years ago in IQANsimulate updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 2 years ago 2

It is possible to simulate different I/O diagnostics cases for i.e. current outputs on the MC43 by left-clicking on them and selecting status. A list of different I/O faults appear for the given output. However, when trying to do the same for a HS, LS or HS/LS digital output, the "Status" option is grayed out. I find this strange as the manual for the MC4X states that there are diagnostics for these output types as well.


IQANsimulate 3.15.15 released

There was a couple of bugs introduced in IQANsimulate 3.15, that we now have fixed. Please use Help > Check for updates to download the new version.


Possibility to automate test sequence in IQAN simulate using scripts

Manoj 1 month ago in IQANsimulate updated by Edward Polzin 1 month ago 1

Hi Edward,

Is there any way to develop a script to automate test sequence in IQAN simulate?

I read that IQAN script tool can be used with IQAN Run to execute sequence of actions in IQAN Run but at present we don't have target hardware hence we need to test logic using IQAN simulate.

Thanks & Regards,



simulator Version problem.

Peter Nyman 2 months ago in IQANsimulate updated 2 months ago 1

When trying to start a simulation i get the following error.
What could be wrong?
I choose 'New simulation'.


Save image from Simulate as PNG

Mark Walser 3 months ago in IQANsimulate 0

Is there a way to save an image of display from Simulation as an PNG or SVG.  We would like to use them in our user manual and would allow for a professional looking image.


Import measure file into simulate

Chris Litwin 7 months ago in IQANsimulate updated by Gustav Widén (System support) 6 months ago 2

I've been looking through the IQANSimulate documentation, but it's not clear to me on how to correctly setup and use a saved measure file to rerun in simulator. I have one group of measure files that will rerun in simulator, but some I took after do not work. What I'm trying to do is save a measure file, make changes to the project in design, load the measure and updated project in simulate, and then take a new measure in IQANRun or IQANDesign from it. Are there specific things I need to do in order to make this work every time?
