This paper introduces a new technique for power estimation; one which can account accurately for nearly all power-dissipating events in a circuit, including spurious pulses. The main idea is to represent circuit operation by a directed graph, called the circuit transition graph, such that there is a one-to-one correspondence between edges in the graph and power-dissipating events in the circuit. The method appears to be particularly applicable to latch design. Using it we derive analytical… CONTINUE READING
