Power consumption is one of the major challenges in VLSI Design. Power constrained designs must attack power reduction with many techniques and need tools to accurately predict the power consumption to provide designers feedback on the efficiency of the power management logic. This paper presents the reduction techniques used, the methodology behind cycle accurate power estimation, and hardware measurements vs. power estimates correlation on the first generation CELL Processor.
