The memory types used in conventional computers are analyzed and a new patented ordered
data access method and apparatus are proposed. Recent patented data access method and apparatus
are described and challenging problems of their use in high-performance computers are discussed.
Distinctive features of the new method compared to known data access methods are discussed.
Input data, their indices and output data of the ordered access memory are described. The ordered access
memory organization and interface as well as their advantages compared to the random, associative, and sequential
access memories are discussed. Four variants of the ordered access memory are described, and the examples of the ordered
access memory usage in computer systems are demonstrated. The results of the ordered access memory implementation
in FPGA are presented.
Keywords: Computer memory, conflict-free data access, data access, memory types, ordered access memory, parallel memory.
