2.2.5. Guideline: Control Clocking to Reduce Power Consumption

Reduce AC power consumption in your design by controlling the clocking of each memory block:

  • Use the read-enable signal to ensure that read operations occur only when necessary. If your design does not require read-during-write, you can reduce your power consumption by de-asserting the read-enable signal during write operations, or during the period when no memory operations occur.
  • Use the Intel® Quartus® Prime software to automatically place any unused memory blocks in low-power mode to reduce static power.
