SimPower was developed by the MDL group at the Penn State University, Department of Computer Science and Engineering.

SimplePower is an execution driven, cycle-accurate RT level energy estimation tool that uses transition sensitive energy models for in-order 5-stage pipelined datapath. Perfect cache  is assumed for this release. The ISA of simulated machine is a subset of the instruction set (the integer part excluding division) of Simplescalar. For architectural details, see 'architecture.eps' in the simpower directory. Refer to the paper appeared in DAC'00 ('The Design and Use of SimplePower: A Cycle Accurate Energy Estimation Tool').
