Content Addressable Memory (CAM) is a special type of computer memory used in certain very high speed searching applications. Content addressable memory offers high-speed search function in a single clock cycle. Due to its parallel match line comparison, CAM is power hungry. Thus, robust, high speed and low-power sense amplifiers are highly sought-after in CAM designs. Introducing a parity bit that leads to sensing delay reduction at cost of less than 1% area and power over head.
