The Micron Automata Processor is a dedicated pattern matching engine that is based on a non-Von Neumann processor architecture, and was designed primarily to satisfy the growing needs of high-speed text-based pattern search applications. We investigate its suitability for HEP pattern recognition applications, using a sample track-confirmation trigger to demonstrate a proof-of-principle. We compare its performance, in this sample application, with that of other processor architectures, namely a general purpose CPU and an FPGA-based implementation using content-addressable memories.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
