The performance characteristics of banyan and crossbar communications networks are compared in a VLSI environment, where it is assumed that the entire network resides on a single VLSI chip and operates in a circuit switched mode. A high-level model of the space (area) and time (delay) requirements for these networks is developed and relative performance comparisons are made based on a space-time p
