TCAM Application Note: Streamline Multi-Byte Searches With TCAM Arrays

Embedded content addressable memories (CAMs) allow system designers to define various configurations to match architectural requirements to achieve the optimal performance, power and cost of the system.

This application note describes a simple way to customize eSilicon’s eFlexCAM™ memories into a register-array CAM that supports parallel compare and write operations and multiple byte-match lines, typically used in network security applications.

CAST™ Automated Test Chip Tool and Services

For quick process introductions, eSilicon’s CAST™ tool and services can automate test-chip generation at any process node or technology:

    • Quickly generates a wide range of test chips to fine-tune new processes
    • Significantly reduces development time and costs
    • Automation eliminates errors introduced by hand coding
eFlex Custom Embedded Memory IP

With embedded memory occupying 50 percent or more of a typical SoC, custom memories can optimize a design for power, performance, or area to deliver the right chip at the right price for your market.

eFlexCAM Custom Embedded CAM Compilers

Unlike pre-defined, packaged component products, eFlexCAM custom CAM compilers let you choose and compile features that fit your design’s unique needs to optimize power, performance, and area. Available from 28nm to 180nm, our CAM compilers are customized to meet IDM and leading foundry processes. Our newest specialty IP includes TSMC 28HPM TCAM, four-port register files, and asynchronous register files.
