|Home > Functional Description > Interfaces > Q-Channel interface for clock|
The Q‑Channel interface for clock is a control port for managing the system clock.
GFC-100 can accept or deny a request from the clock controller to turn off all operations that are using the clock.
GFC-100 uses the qactive_clk signal to indicate it has an activity that is using the clock. When GFC-100 asserts qactive_clk, the clock controller keeps the clock enabled.
When GFC-100 has no activity, it accepts the quiescence request for the clock, and enters the Q_STOPPED state.
When the clock controller requests the clock to be disabled, if the activity indication is HIGH, GFC-100 denies the request.
