<p><it>Abstract</it>—Pipelined communication using virtual channels can realize low latency, high throughput, inter-processor communication. This paper presents an analytic performance model of pipelined communication in <it>k</it>-ary <it>n</it>-cubes. The model contains elements intended to capture and study key performance issues. In addition to the modeling of throughput and latency, the following issues are addressed using this model: 1) the tradeoff between full-duplex vs. half-duplex links, 2) the effects of intranode delay, 3) the effects of buffer size for each virtual channel. Detailed simulation experiments under a variety of conditions establish the viability of this model.</p>
