The magnetic moment is still stored on atoms, which could be disturbed thermally. What is the temperature range of operation?

content addressable memories are used in certain very high speed searching applications. More likely to be used in the network for routing information than in the server. The high-speed (the whole of the CAM can be searched for matches in one hit) come at a cost that each memory cell requires a comparison circuit.....so the cell size is many transistors compared with 1 or 4 or 6 for DRAM or SRAM, but Tohoku-NEC are cutting that down and saving standby power with developments like those described above.

I've heard of CAM in the context of forms of artificial intelligence / pattern recognition. Is that what they are going for here? It doesn't seem so from the text of this article. Am I missing something here? Larry M.

I never know people present top ideas in this event: Symposia on VLSI Circuits and Technologies. Very fascinating then.
