The Video Timing Controller core has multiple enable options: the CLKEN pin (hardware clock enable), and the software enable option provided via the AXI4-Lite control interface (when present).

The CLKEN pin cannot ensure synchronization internally to video timing processing therefore deasserting CLKEN for extended periods of time may lead to generating incomplete frames or lengthening the period needed to detect incoming video frame timing.

The CLKEN pin facilitates:

Multi-cycle path designs (High speed clock division without clock gating)

Standby operation of subsystems to save on power

Hardware controlled bring-up of system components
