In this paper we use the code Exemplar for matching a hydrodynamic 1D, time-dependent simulator and the transport coefficients obtained by the Monte Carlo simulator Damocles. This code is based on the Least Square method and it does not require any a priori knowledge about the simulator (analytical form of the equations etc.). The stationary electron flow in a one dimensional n+nn+ submicron silicon diode is simulated.
