OBD2 Mini Simulator

Virtual car supports PWM/ISO/KWP2000

OBD2 Mini Simulator
A full sized car parked next to your bench may technically be a good solution but in most cases just isn’t not possible. You don’t need to resort to expensive professional equipment to do the job. The MiniSim OBD simulator device described here is a low-cost and efficient unit which simulates communication from a vehicle’s OBD port and can communicate using four of the most popular OBD protocols.
