Is there any plan to improve multi-master simulation?
Data is not sent between the masters, and therefore a machine can not be fully simulated.
This will make our future designs much more difficult to maintain.
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.
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
"Set value" function more accessible
For more details, see release notes.
When simulating and/or troubleshooting in IQANrun delay on and delay off (for IDCs for example).
It would be great to know the current value of the delay.
Displaying a live timer of the internal value being counted down.
So if the IDC has a 240,000 msec delay on, you could tell how far along this delay was.
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
Using IQANdesign 6.05.18.6047 and trying to incorporate lines with gradients on the MD4.
When developing User Interface in IQANdesign the lines with gradients appear as they should.
However when simulating, not all gradients appear as designed and are one solid colour. Appears to only happen on a portion of the page.
When I simulate a program with an IoT module, the module status is not evaluated in IQANDesign on start-up.
I have to force the module to "No Contact" to have IQANDesign evaluate its status. I can then return it to "OK" state to properly simulate my logic related to the IoT status. I am not sure why this is happening.
I am currently using IQAN6.04.
