E-TCAM: An Efficient SRAM-Based Architecture for TCAM

  title={E-TCAM: An Efficient SRAM-Based Architecture for TCAM},
  author={Zahid Ullah and Manish Kumar Jaiswal and Ray C. C. Cheung},
Ternary content addressable memories (TCAMs) perform high-speed search operation in a deterministic time. However, when compared with static random access memories (SRAMs), TCAMs suffer from certain limitations such as lowstorage density, relatively slow access time, low scalability, complex circuitry, and higher cost. One fundamental question is that can we utilize SRAM to combine it with additional logic to achieve the TCAM functionality? This paper proposes an efficient memory architecture… CONTINUE READING
