This paper studies the problem of estimating worst case power dissipation in a sequential circuit. We approach this problem by nding the maximum average weight cycles in a weighted directed g r aph. In order to handle practical sized examples, we use symbolic methods, based o n A lgebraic Decision Diagrams (ADDs), for computing the maximum average length cycles as well as the number of gate transitions in the circuit, which is necessary to construct the weighted directed g r aph.
