2.4.1. Clock Power Management

Clocks represent a significant portion of dynamic power consumption due to their high switching activity and long paths. Actual clock-related power consumption is higher, because the power consumption of a block includes local clock distribution within logic, memory, and DSP or multiplier blocks.

The Quartus® Prime software optimizes clock routing power automatically, enabling only those portions of the clock network that are necessary to feed downstream registers.
