Is this a kind of SRAM-based hardware CAM IC design?

Cool technology...I am not sure I understand KRS03 how the power up sequence can change in a lifetime of the product...presumably there is a recommended sequence for this and chip controls it to some extent too

I agree. They would have to have a lot of bits and some algorithm that would check that is is close to the original pattern.

I'm sure that "a series of metastable SRAM bits" is oversimplifying the design significantly. The ID must not change over the lifetime of the part and over a variety of power-up conditions and temperatures.
