Latest IQANdesign software benefits from Simulink integration

Parker Hannifin has collaborated with MathWorks on its latest IQANdesign 6 software. Now featuring Simulink integration, the new IQAN software has been developed to speed innovation in electronic controls for mobile machines used in markets such as agriculture, construction, forestry, material handling and transportation.

IQANdesign 6, which lets users create applications for their machines, was officially unveiled at this year's Bauma 2019 exhibition in Munich in April. Offering the new IQAN Simulink Toolbox, the software is able to streamline the model-based design, simulation and deployment of electronic controls. This development is expected to transform work that involves the creation or improvement of mobile machine functions.

Around the globe, engineers and scientists already benefit from the IQAN and Simulink product families, accelerating the pace of discovery, innovation and development in sectors that extend from automotive to electronics. Integrating the two software environments reduces development time with a more efficient and convenient tool chain, offering users an unprecedented way to rapidly deploy code on production-ready hardware in real-time applications.

The seamless integration of Simulink models within the IQAN ecosystem enables automatic generation of real-time applications from Simulink models targeting IQAN-MC4x controllers. Concurrent execution of multiple models with individual time bases and priorities are also supported.

Simulink models are executed in a dedicated real-time kernel, with Inports and Outports available in IQANdesign application logic. Using IQANdesign, users can view and navigate Simulink models, which are also included within system simulations provided by IQANsimulate. In addition, Simulink Testpoints are visible and measurable in IQANdesign/IQANrun.

Johan Lidén, product manager at Parker Hannifin, comments: "Businesses are under increasing pressure to innovate. Our collaboration with MathWorks will remove time and resource obstacles for R&D teams. IQANdesign 6 is a powerful, flexible and intuitive platform, with a low threshold to learn and master."
