Efficient detection of errors in associative memory

Anat Bremler-Barr, David Hay, Ronny Roth


A method for error detection includes storing in an associative memory multiple data entries, each data entry including a data item together with one or more check symbols computed with respect to the data item. A predetermined sequence of search keys is applied to the memory, thereby causing the memory to generate, in parallel, match results with respect to the data entries. The match results are processed in order to identify an error in at least one of the data entries.
