We present a power analysis system for semi-custom hardware design that operates on a cell level making it a faster alternative to the currently available transistor level systems. Our system allows for the calculation of static and dynamic power consumption of a circuit. Measuring the power consumption is critical for low power design as it enables the designer to meet power specifications, drive power optimization tools, distribute power effectively through a design and choose appropriate packages. Implementation results show that the power analysis system is 4 orders of magnitude faster than circuit-level simulation, with accuracy within 10%
