2 2 Outline  Load Balanced Switch  Scalability  Reconfiguration Algorithm  Hardware Implementation

3 3 R R R R R R Typical Router Architecture Input Switch Fabric Scheduler Output N x N

4 4 Out R R R R/N In R R R R/N Load-Balanced Switch Load-balancing mesh Forwarding mesh

18 18 Number of MEMS Switches  MEMS switches between groups i and j  Total Number of MEMS switches: M ≤ L+G-1

19 19 Questions  Number of MEMS Switches?  TDM Schedule?

20 20 Group A 1 2 2R 4R Group B 12 2R 4R TDM Schedule 12 2R Group A 12 2R Group B 4R 2R Constraints on linecards at each time-slot Constraints on groups at each time-slot

21 21 At each time-slot:  Each transmitting linecard sends one packet  Each receiving linecard receives one packet  (MEMS constraint) Each transmitting group i sends at most one packet to each receiving group j through each MEMS connecting them In a schedule of N time-slots:  Each transmitting linecard sends exactly one packet to each receiving linecard Rules for TDM Schedule

32 32 Matrix Decomposition Problem  Use of sparsity of matrices to represent the ones as a row-column pair  Consists of two stages  Greedy Algorithm  Slepian-Duguid Algorithm 1.Decomposes all the permutation matrices at once 2.Uses the row-column pair list structure

33 33 Synthesis  40 Groups and 640 Linecards  0.13u process  Cycle time within 4ns  Connection Assignment Problem 1. 10K gates 2. 24Kbits memory  Matrix Decomposition Problem 1. 25K gates Kbits of memory
