In general, dealing with Clock Enables is less complex than dealing with Reset. In most of the design usage, it is obvious and straightforward. However, Clock Enables can grow as complex as Reset on power aware designs in which Clock Enables are extensively used and are controlled using special logic circuits. Dynamic power on logic cells depends on the switching activity of Clock Enables. If the activity rates are not set properly, it will easily result in inaccurate numbers.
For example, Enable is expected to be asserted (active) throughout the run and remains inactive only when the logic cell is not being used - if at all explicitly controlled to save power. This could be denoted in terms of switching activity as:
Report Power identifies primary ports which are found to be global enables and applies the above switching activity. It uses a very conservative and safe way to identify the global enables: the ports which are directly connected to CE pins of leaf primitives.
The Power Report also helps identify such Enable nets in the design, so that you can quickly validate the switching information on these nets and take corrective action. You can run a first trial run of Report Power using the default settings to analyze the activity on Enable nets.
