ABSTRACT
The heart of a massively parallel computer is its interconnection network. In this article we present a reconfigurable multiple bus network to support circuit switching as means of communication between the processors of a multiprocessor machine. The main contribution of the paper is in demonstrating the simplicity of the routing hardware whilst still providing modularity and full utilization of the multiple bus system. A comparison with major interconnection networks is also presented.
