With the shift to low power IC design for personal computing and communication applications, designers' priorities turn to accurate and efficient estimation of power consumption in ICs. Traditional current and power estimation techniques based on a SPICE-like simulation do not provide the necessary efficiency for such an application, and thus new approaches have been recently proposed. In this, the first of a series of articles that reflect the new orientation of this column, Professor Farid Najm of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign presents an overview of different techniques for estimating power consumption in large-scale IC designs. He also discusses computer aided design tools to help in the task.<>
