Abstract

See full text

A node includes input ports that are configured to receive packets from other nodes or from devices coupled to the node and output ports that are configured to send packets to other nodes or devices. Scheduling logic may control how packets that are received via the input ports are routed to the output ports. An input port may receive a packet that has multiple destinations or recipients. The scheduling logic may be configured to route this multi-destination packet to at least one of the output ports if at least one of the packet's recipients has an input buffer available to receive the packet.
