In contrast, the network obtained when recursive decomposition was applied to the Omega network had the same properties. For scalable Clos networks with n > 1: Center-stage cells are recursive. Other cells are atomic. 13-1 EE 7725 Lecture Transparency. Formatted 13:04, 19 November 1997 from lsli1* *9. 13-1 13-2 * * 13-2 Two Methods To Compute Cost The powerful way: write recurrence equations: Let C(n; m) be cost of network of size n using m m cells. C(1; m) = m2 xp C(n; m) = m2 mn1 xp +mC(n 1; m) + m2 mn1 xp = 2mn+1 xp +mC(n 1; m)

Equations like this can easily (more or less) be solved in closed form. The easy? clever? way: Observation: every stage consists of mn1 cells. Number of stages: 2n 1. C(n; m) = m2 mn1 (2n 1) xp = mn+1 (2n 1) xp Substituting N = mn and n = log m N : C(N; m) = mN (2 log m N 1) xp Cost is almost twice the cost of an omega network. But, it is much less than non-recursive Clos network. And it's still a permutation network. 13-2 EE 7725 Lecture Transparency.

Use looping algorithm several times: - We're finished if network consists of a single 2 2 crossbar. - Otherwise, use looping algorithm, remembering that this is a recursive network. Result is settings for first and last stages, and permutations for two center-stage recursive cells. - Route each center-stage recursive cell using this procedure. 13-3 EE 7725 Lecture Transparency.
