3.5. Reduce Power Consumption

Reduce alternating current (AC) power consumption of each memory block in your design:

  • Use the Stratix® 10 memory block clock enables to control the clocking of each embedded 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 power consumption by deasserting the read enable signal during write operations and when there are no memory operations.
  • Use the Quartus® Prime software to automatically place unused embedded memory blocks in low-power mode to reduce static power.
