Based on charge injection and current-saving methods, a novel technique is presented to achieve low power for match-line sensing in content-addressable memories (CAMs). The proposed technique eliminates the requirement for an additional large capacitance as in charge injection method, and delay element as in current-saving method. Simulation results show… CONTINUE READING
