The design and operation of an Associative List Selector ALS and a Switching Unit SUN is described. The ALS, used in conjunction with a controlling computer either the CDC 1604B or the Univac M1218, provides a unique approach to rapid list intersection. The approach utilized is a form of content addressing, and specifically is termed hash addressing or address calculation. The memory within the ALS is a conventional readmodifywrite memory with a cycle time of one microsecond. It has the capacity to store 4096 words of 72 bits each. The ALS has the ability to handle lists with a nominal length of 2000 items.
