A CAM device is a semiconductior in which packet address information is stored such that a destination address may be located by making a direct match. By comparing what is sought for against all pre-stored possibilities, searching through a table is eliminated and routing of packets is expedited. Having this functionality hardwired in has proven to be a faster method than software routines, search engines and hash tables performing a similar function. CAM has emerged as the search engine of choice because of their ability to conduct high-speed table lookups that are required to meet the demands of ever-growing traffic on the Internet.
