    how to measure power consumption of a circuit in cadence spectre Reply

    Hi,

    I would like to know how can I estimate the power consumption of a circuit say an inverter circuit in cadence environment. I searched through the internet, but couldn't find any suitable doc that is helpful in this regard. I am looking for the steps required for power estimation.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Indrajit

     Save the current through the voltage source, and then multiply the current by the voltage - and maybe take the RMS of that using the rms function in the calculator?
