Are there any recommendations on lowering power consumption in a Xilinx XC9500/XL/XV CPLD?
This information is also applicable to the other XC9500 family devices (XC9500, XC9500XV), but not the CoolRunner-II/XPLA3 families.
The simplest way to immediately lower power consumption in the XC9500 family is to change the macrocells to operate in low-power mode. However, this does cause the propagation delays to increase.
Details on setting the power mode in the software can be found in (Xilinx Answer 2146).
