UltraScale+ architecture-based devices provide the capability to cascade the data out from one block RAM to the next block RAM serially. This will enable the devices to create a deeper block RAM in a bottom-up fashion. When used in cascaded mode, the power consumption is considerably low compared to the block RAM used in non-cascaded mode.

Details on the left panel and observe the cascaded and
non-cascaded block RAM power.
