A low-power ternary content-addressable memory using pulse current based match-line sense amplifiers

Abstract

This paper presents the design of the pulse current based match-line sense amplifier (PCB-MLSA) for low-power ternary content-addressable memories (TCAMs). In the PCB-MLSA scheme, each matchline in the TCAM is charged with a pulse current and then the voltage development on the matchline is sensed to distinguish between the match case and the mismatch case… (More)
