Abstract—In order to evaluate and investigate performance of a digital communication system, this paper presents a new approach that can be used to design, model and develop a Stochastic digital channel simulator to plug into any digital communication system under different modulation schemes. The data packet structure that has been used with this system is based on a High-Level Data Link Control (HDLC) standard. The simulation tool is a SystemC that is provide various features to perform system level modeling and simulation. The challenge was how to efficiently simulate this channel by using the hardware modeling features available in SystemC, and then how we have developed this channel. Also discussed how the modeling features can be used to simulate different noise sources that can be used to introduce noise events depends on specific distribution
