An interconnection network is presented for a massively parallel fine-grained single-instruction, multiple-data (SIMD) system, called the polymorphic-torus, whose design goal is to provide high communication bandwidth under a packaging constraint. This goal is achieved by the polymorphic principle, which injects switches with circuit-switching capability into every node of a base network (e.g.
