Modeling and estimation of switching activities remain to be important problems in low-power design and fault analysis. A probabilistic Bayesian Network based switching model can explicitly model all spatio-temporal dependency relationships in a combinational circuit, resulting in zero-error estimates. However, the space-time requirements of exact estimation schemes, based on this model, increase with circuit complexity [1, 2] . This paper explores a non-simulative, Importance Sampling based,
