Abstract : The utility of content-addressable memories (CAM's) within a general purpose computing system is investigated. Word cells within CAM may be addressed by the character of all or a part of cell contents. Multimembered sets of word cells may be addressed simultaneously. The distributed logical capabilities of CAM are extended to allow simultaneous transformation of multimembered sets and to allow communication between neighboring word cells. A novel set of logical and arithme tic commands is proposed for the extended CAM and algorithms are given for execution of these commands. A simulation package is developed which allows simulation of CAM commands within job programs run on the IBM 7090 and derives tallies of execution times corresponding to a particular realization of a CAM system.
