The crossbar fabric is widely used as the interconnect of high-performance packet switches due to its low cost and scalability. There are two main variants of the crossbar fabric: unbuffered and internally buffered. On one hand, unbuffered crossbar fabric switches exhibit the advantage of using no internal buffers. However, they require a centralized and… (More)
