With the demand of high computational power, parallel processing systems play an essential role in various areas. In parallel computers, the communication between processors and memory modules rely entirely on the interconnection network. Hence there occurs a need for optical interconnection networks to meet the increasing demands as they provide high bandwidth, cost-effective and reliable way of communication. The rearrangeable network is a dynamic network, in which every input and output pair connection can be realized for a given permutation by setting a set of switching elements.
