A design with more logic elements (LEs), multiplier elements, memory blocks, transceiver blocks, or HPS system tends to consume more power than a design with fewer circuit elements. The operating mode of each circuit element also affects its power consumption.

For example, a DSP block performing 18 × 18 multiplications and a DSP block performing multiply-accumulate operations consume different amounts of dynamic power, because of different amounts of charging internal capacitance on each transition. The operating mode of a circuit element also affects static power.
