2.2.5. Guideline: Control Clocking to Reduce Power Consumption

Reduce AC power consumption of each memory block in your design:

  • Use Intel® Arria® 10 memory block clock-enables to allow you to control 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.
