An implicit address structure and technique are disclosed for rapidly accessing storage registers by eliminating the need for generating a separate address before referencing the register. A structure is provided for generating an address composed of parameters which are incorporated into the contents of the storage register. At the same time that the address generation occurs, the structure of the present invention provides an associative compare of the implicit registers, and if there is a match, the address generation step is terminated and the data is immediately available from the implicit register.
