3.4. 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 deasserting 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.
  • Create independent clock enable for different input and output registers to control the shut down of a particular register for power saving purposes. From the parameter editor, click More Options (beside the clock enable option) to set the available independent clock enable that you prefer.
