Abstract

MultiRing is a network of 2nnodes which can be configured into different ring networks of n different configurations. It supports a wide variety of algorithms, such as algorithms for parallel image processing. In this paper, a MultiRing is implemented using a star topology with a MultiRing switch at the centre. We present a hierarchical design of the MultiRing switch. We demonstrate that the construction of the switch is economical in terms of gate count and port numbers. Our design preserves the need that all nodes can communicate simultaneously and independently in a ring configuration. We show that our design is scalable.
