Clock enable CEN# reduces power consumption if disabled
Does Clock enable CEN# reduce power consumption if disabled (High)?
When the CEN# is high the part does not get the clocks, but is still active. So, when the part is still active it drives the outputs and hence will consume some power but it will be lesser than the power it would consume if the part was in the active mode.
