Efficient Broadcast and Multicast on Multistage Interconnection Networks using Multiport Encoding

This paper proposes a new approach for implementing fast multicast and broad cast in unidirectional and bidirectional multistage interconnection networks (MINs) with multiport encoded multidestination worms. For a MIN with n stages such worms use n header flits each. One flit is used for each stage of the network and it indicates th e output ports to which… CONTINUE READING
