|Abstract||This paper proposes a method to estimate the reliability of a circuit based on the energy distribution of that circuit. A circuit with a widespread energy distribution is more unreliable in comparison with one with uniform energy distribution. A gate within a circuit that has a major contribution to energy distribution will have a greater impact on the variability within the circuit as opposed to a component with a minor contribution.
