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.
