with the item being searched until a match occurs. The number of access to the
memory depends upon the location and the efficiency of search algorithm.
The time required to find an item stored in memory can be reduced considerably
if stored data can be identified for access by the content of the data itself rather
than by address .A memory unit accessed
by content is called
ASSOCIATIVE MEMORY or CONTENT ADDRESSABLE MEMORY ( CAM ).
This type of memory is accessed simultaneously and in parallel on the basis of
data content rather than by specific address or location. when a word is written
in associate memory no address is given. The memory is capable of finding
empty unused location to store the word.
Because of its organisation the associate memory is uniquely suited to do
parallel; searches by data Association . Associate memory are used in
application where the search time is critical and must be very short. VLSI DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION
