Presents a novel design framework for designing fault tolerant/self-checking content addressable memories (CAM). The proposed methodology produces a CAM structural architecture starting from a functional description of some high level properties of the device (design directives). The analysis focuses on the functional level; in particular, the paper concentrates on functional level synthesis, by considering the transformation from the functional description to the structural definition. Some examples will be provided as support to the description.
