An Associative Accelerator for Large Databases
November/December 1991 (vol. 11 no. 6)
pp. 22-34

The RAPID-1 (relational access processor for intelligent data), an associative accelerator that recognizes tuples and logical formulas, is presented. It evaluates logical formulas instantiated by the current tuple, or record, and operates on whole relations or on hashing buckets. RAPID- 1 uses a reduced instruction set and hardwired control and executes all comparisons in a bit-parallel mode. It speeds up the database by a significant factor and will adapt to future generations of microprocessors. The principal design issues, data structures, instruction set, architecture, environments and performance are discussed.
