The Low Power Distributor Q-Channel (LPD-Q) component enables a Q-Channel controller to control, and potentially sequence, multiple Q-Channel devices.
The LPD-Q supports from 1-8 device Q-Channel interfaces and can be configured to operate in the following modes:
The control Q-Channel (ctrl_* signals) receives power mode requests from the Q-Channel controller. The LPD-Q uses the device Q-Channels (dev_* signals) to send the requests to the devices. The LPD-Q uses clk_qactive_o to indicate when it requires a clock signal, clk.
The ctrl_qactive_o output is the logical OR of the multiple device inputs, dev_qactive_i<X>. The path from the dev_qactive_i<X> signals to the ctrl_qactive_o output is a combinatorial path.
The clk_qactive_o is a Q-Channel signal that is HIGH:
The type of response that the LPD-Q generates to the controller, in response to a quiescence request, depends on the responses that the LPD-Q receives from the devices:
The LPD-Q denies a controller quiescence request, either when:
When either of these denial conditions occur, then the LPD-Q sets ctrl_qdeny_o HIGH.
The LPD-Q supports optional resynchronization on either or both the controller and device interfaces.
