Low-power, high-speed match-detection circuits for a content addressable memory(CAM) are proposed and evaluated. The circuits consist a current supply to a match-line, a differential amplifier, and 9-MOSFET CAM cells. The implementation of these circuits made it possible to realize a 16-entry, 32-bit data-compare CAM TEG of 1.2-ns matchdetection time with 5-mW power dissipation in 10-ns cycle-time.
