Abstract

This chapter presents an analytical framework which considers the design of a continuous fabric of switch blocks containing any length of wire segments. The framework is used to design new switch blocks which are experimentally shown to be as effective as the best ones known to date. With this framework, we hope to inspire new ways of looking at switch block design.
