<p>The functional structure of a classical content-addressable memory (CAM) and its realization at the transistor level are described. Some unorthodox CAM approaches are briefly examined. Associative processor systems are discussed, and application-specific CAM architectures to support artificial intelligence features are surveyed. Limitations of associative processing and ways to circumvent them are addressed. The use of parallel cellular logic is considered.</p>
