Paper Abstract

M X N generalized shuffle networks are generally constituted by arrays of m X n switches linked together by an interconnection network. The number of stages necessary to obtain all the possible input-output links is very low. Therefore, they can be easily implemented on LiNbO3 crystals because the overall network length is reduced even if the transversal dimension is slightly increased. The architecture of such a shuffle network is presented here and its performance, in terms of networks cost, throughput, and bandwidth, is evaluated. The possible elementary switches are outlined.
