Abstract

An optically coupled three-dimensional content addressable memory is newly proposed for parallel data processing. Several memory layers are stacked in this memory. The memory cell consists of three parts for data store, data matching and data transfer. The optically coupling flip-flop with LEDs and photoconductors is employed in the data transfer part. Simultaneous data inspection through several memory layers can be implemented by optical coupling. Consequently, the inspection speed and the memory address space is significantly increased.
