A comparative study of bidirectional ring and crossbar interconnection networks


For distributed shared memory multiprocessors, the choice and the design of interconnection networks have a significant impact on their performance. Bidirectional ring networks are considered to be physically fast due to their simple structure, but topologically slow since their communication latency grows at O(N). In this paper, we will present a… (More)
