This textbook provides a quick and easy understanding of multistage interconnection networks (MINs) for engineers. The book contents focus on the design, performance metrics, and evaluation of these networks which are crucial in modern computer architecture. The contents equip engineering students, apprentices and professionals with in-depth knowledge and analysis of MINS, enabling them to build complex computer architectures for efficient data communications and cost effective solutions for circuit design. The book starts with an introduction to MINS and subsequently progresses to the evaluation of a range of MINS (SEN, Gamma-Minus, FTSN, FTGN, SEGIN).
Key highlights of the book include:
- - Easy to understand notes on design, reliability and fault tolerance
- - Covers a wide range of MIN types with notes on design variants
- - Supplementary information aiding comprehension of the main content.
- - A curated list of references for further exploration and deeper understanding.
Graduate-level students, engineers and researchers working on embedded systems design and network design.
