Because the algorithms have the same fixed-point representation across MATLAB and Simulink, design engineers can complete their designs in a single environment.
However, converting floating-point algorithms to HDL cores is non-trivial because it is very difficult to maintain system behavior when these algorithms are recast in a fixed-point representation.
The GUI's value profiling capability helps the user choose the best fixed-point representations based on simulation runs and analysis.
