As process technologies have scaled, the increasing number of processor cores and memories on a single die has also driven the need for more complex on-chip interconnection networks. Crossbar switches are primary building blocks in such networks-on-chip, as they can be used as fast single-stage networks or as the core of the router switch in multi-stage networks. While crossbars offer non-blocking, single-hop, all-to-all communication, they tend to scale poorly with the number of nodes due to… CONTINUE READING
