Abstract:


This paper presents a new approach to model and simulate a Stochastic digital wireless channel with a controlled value of Bit-Error-Rate (BER) for Point-to-Point (P2P) and Point-to-Multipoint (P2M) platforms based on SystemC which is a modelling environment and can be used to express system functionality at various levels of abstraction. The data packet structure that has been used with this system is based on a High-Level Data Link Control (HDLC) standard. The challenge was how to efficiently simulate this channel by using the hardware modelling features available in SystemC, and then how we have developed this channel. Also discussed how the modelling features can be used to simulate different noise sources that can be used to introduce noise events depends on Weibull distribution.
