    Dear all,

    I am doing a project titled "Power Modelling of embedded SRAM".
    There are 2 types of SRAM cells that I need to take care of one is the
    standard SRAM and the other is the assymetric SRAM cell (where writing
    a zero is significantly less energy consuming than writing a one). The
    model should provide an estimate of the power consumption (when
    reading from the memory and when writing into the memory) based on
    input parameters such as Data Wordlength, Memory Size, Aspect Ratio and
    Data Distribution.

    Our SRAM generator in here is written in SKILL. Though most of the job
    is done by that, it still needs some manual intervention in order to
    create the complete layout suitable for testing.

    Are there any Cadence tools which can calculate the power consumption?

    I am not exactly sure how I can go about doing this task of power
    modelling. I would be very greatful if you could give me some idea on
    how I can proceed further in this.

    I have some working knowledge of Cadence and OCEAN scripting language
    but not SKILL.

    Thanks and Regards,
