05751987 is referenced by 200 patents and cites 20 patents.

Memory chips with data memory (202), embedded logic (206) and broadcast memory (204) for two modes of operation are disclosed. A first mode of operation is the usual memory mode expected of a data RAM. The second mode of operation allows localized computation and/or processing of the data in data memory (202) by the embedded logic (206) with minimal handshaking with a remote CPU. In a functioning system, the memory chips are organized in a hierarchical manner and include address-associative memory systems.

Title
