<p>An associative processor architecture that integrates the functionality of content-addressable memory (CAM), functional memory (FM), and associative parallel processors (APPs) in a single-chip architecture is described. The hardware design, environment and applications of the Coherent Processor, a microchannel memory device designed by combining 16 such chips, are discussed. It is shown that the processor's writable control store permits quick execution of application-specific microcoded operations.</p>
