Can the Elastic Clocks be clock gated?
Yes. Given the fact that the circuit is practically identical to its synchronous counterpart, the same clock gating structures can be inherited and used in the elastic circuit. Even though the Elastic Clocks continuously generate clock pulses (like a PLL), these pulses can be intercepted and blocked before being transmitted to the sequential elements of the circuit. The fact that the original synchronous design already has clock gating structures is transparent and orthogonal to the substitution of rigid clocks by Elastic Clocks.
