The Data Logger's intended use is to capture signals and triggers and to record them to data files for post-simulation analysis. It records multiple signals' evolution during the simulation in order to give users the ability to validate their design in a post-processing phase.
The supported format for the log files is OPREC (.oprec). Additionally, the DataLogger captures transient phenomena and anomalies when they occur, which provides options to trigger the acquisition of data.
Here are some of its advantages over the standard acquisition with ScopeView:
Usable with either triggered or non-triggered acquisition
Less intrusive on real-time simulation performance
Capable of capturing signals with trigger conditions that occur at any moment during the simulation, including the very first calculation steps
Capable of logging multiple signals' acquisition within the same model and within a multi-model simulation scope
Handles multiple signal groups and multiple acquisition rates based on ratios of the simulation step
