This paper describes modeling and simulation of the Data Collection Chip (DCC) design for the Solenoidal Detector Collaboration (SDC). Models of the DCC written in Verilog and VHDL are described, and results are presented. The models have been simulated to study queue depth requirements and to compare control feedback alternatives. Insight into the management of models and simulation tools is given. Finally, techniques useful in the design process for data acquisition systems are discussed.
