The Associative Microprogrammable Multipurpose Monoprocessor (AM3) is an associative 32-bit processor based on a modified Harvard architecture. It is provided with a standard address driven bus system to handle "von Neumann"--like data and instructions and a separate addressless associative bus-system to provide a link to associative memory components. Due to its microprogrammability it can be adapted to a variety of associative memory circuits. The following paper presents the architecture, the programming environment together with the implementations of a pattern recognition method and a method to compute the shortest path in a graph asapplication paradigms.
