04587610 is referenced by 43 patents and cites 24 patents.

An address translation method and apparatus is disclosed for use in an auxiliary memory of a computer, which stores data in association with a tag defining its location in a main memory, and also includes a buffer for storing a plurality of addresses together with translations of the corresponding main memory locations, permitting data obtained from the auxiliary memory to be validated by comparing the tag with the translation from the buffer. An improvement in the auxiliary memory is disclosed consisting of a content addressable memory (CAM) for storing translations not found in the buffer. The CAM is adapted so that it can be searched for a translation and the translation, if found in the CAM, is employed to verify data in the auxiliary memory.
