Paper Abstract

The Benes network has two major advantages: one is that it has the lowest system insertion loss and the other is that it needs the fewest switches and drivers. However, lower signal- to-noise ratio (SNR) is its major disadvantage. The generally modified dilated Benes (GMDB) network has been proposed to obtain a higher SNR, but this network needs much more drivers. In this presentation, the modified Benes network is proposed to obtain a higher SNR with the same number of drivers as Benes network.
