In digital electronics, the power–delay product is a figure of merit correlated with the energy efficiency of a logic gate or logic family. Also known as switching energy, it is the product of power consumption (averaged over a switching event) times the input–output delay, or duration of the switching event. It has the dimension of energy, and measures the energy consumed per switching event.
