1.4. Power Optimization Summary
The Cyclone V SoC offers significant power reduction potential through the mere fact of integration. This power savings benefit can be further extended through use of the power saving methods described in this application note to help meet the power targets for your design. On the processor side, seven methods are available. As for the FPGA, powering off the FPGA when not utilized provides the most dramatic difference. Whatever your system power savings goals are, the methods described in this application note can help make a difference in achieving them.
