Profile matching 

Profile matching is one of the most common methods of model validation. The response profiles produced by applying identical command signals to both the simulation model and the target application are compared. Any differences indicate the need for further debugging.

Target application response profiles collected from the target are transmitted to the host over the Hotlink interface and compared with the simulation model response profiles.  Embed provides two data collection methods:

      Direct: Variable values are transmitted from the target to the host in real time as they are calculated.  Overall communication bandwidth is limited to approximately 200Hz.

      Buffered: The Embed “Monitor Buffer” records variable values at the target execution rate (this can be 10kHz or greater), stores them in a configurable array, and strobes the array to the host where the data can be saved or plotted.
