Design and Comparative Evaluation of a PCM-Based CAM (Content Addressable Memory) Cell


This paper presents the design of a content addressable memory (CAM) cell. This cell utilizes a phase change memory (PCM) as a storage element and an ambipolar transistor for data comparison; the operation of the ambipolar transistor is controlled by voltage at the polarity gate. A memory core consisting of a CMOS transistor and a PCM is employed (1T1P… (More)
