A power estimation approach is presented in which blocks of
consecutive vectors are selected at random from a user-supplied
realistic input vector set and the circuit is simulated for each block
starting from an unknown state. This leads to two (upper and lower)
bounds on the desired power value which can be quite tight (under 10%
difference between the two in many cases). As a result, the power
dissipation is obtained by simulating only a fraction of the potentially
very large vector set
