Abstract

The Content Addressable Memory (CAM) is a class of memory that allows access by data instead of physical address. In this paper a novel low power CAM cell called the toggling match line CAM is introduced. It is shown to provide over 40% reduction in power consumed on read misses as compared to the basic CAM design.
