Abstract: CAM (content-addressable memory) is a specialized type of high-speed memory  that searches its entire contents in a single clock cycle. We are designing  generalized CAM using Dual Port RAM (random access memory) structure which will perform match operation in addition to read and write operation .The design has fast search capabilities while consuming least system resources as possible.CAM provides performance advantage over other search algorithms as searching is based on content rather than address unlike RAM. The match time of our CAM   structure is faster and resources are more effective.CAM is used in application where search time is very critical. content addressable memory  compare input search data against stored data and return address of  matched data. Thus overall function of CAM is to take search word and return matching memory location.
