Thank you in advance!

dSpace Targetlink makes the debugging easier than rtw
dSpace Targetlink Approach: Logging the signal values via 'Log Signal Histories' option in targetlink helps to capture the values at different time stamp and gives us the model and code values under a single GUI, which makes analysis and debugging of any complex system more easier and efficient.
rtw approach:: In case of any mismatch between model and code, breakpoints to be placed in the code and have to debug line by line , which is a time consuming process.
dSpace Targetlink has many customisation option which rtw may not have.
Readability of the code is much better in Targetlink than RTW

Target link mainly created for automotive industry .when it comes to generating code with target link and RTW , there is a diffrence between suite of both code generation tools . in target link it will convert it is own model formalism which is having like scaling and adapataion , In rtw there is no need to convert in formalism ,dimension ,verfication etc., editables in simulink,stateflow itself . In there is more scope to transformation and optimization in rtw of code compared Targetlink.Target link is not supported for airbourn system related to avionics software systems DO-178B guidelines but it is having good work flow with automotive software platform for different types of hardwares and it other domains like autosar.
