    digital clock advantage

    In short,

    Advantage: save power

    Disadvantage: difficult to manage the timing during synthesis and STA . Besides, if something wrong, it's also hard to debug :(

    advantages of clock gating

    saves power but it is complex in terms of design and issues...

    disadvantages of clocks

    It is used to turn off the flops when we don't need.

    I have no idea about disadvantages of Gated clock.

    Friends, Please provide your views in this regard.

    what are the disadvantages of a digital clock

    Gated clock - Difficult to verify in GLS ,
    Physical perspective - more insertion delay for clock tree
    Inreases area , complicates timing closure with all the clock gating checks.... (just a lil bit)

    advantages disadvantages of clock gating

    Clock Gating

    Dis Advantage: hard to implement CTS . But tools are now capable do it

    Advantage: use d to decrease the Dynamic Power consumption

    disadvantage of a digital clock

    Hi,
    Yes it's advantage is to reduce the consumed dynamic power. However the advantage is the complexity of implementations (the logic of gating controler) as well as the additional area taken by this controller.
