The design of a high speed self-routing network switch module is described. Clock distribution and timing design to achieve high-speed operation are considered. A 88-port self-routing Benes network switch prototype on multi-chip module is fabricated using 44-port space division switch LSIs. The switch module achieves a maximum measured clock frequency of 750MHz under switching operation. Resultant total throughput of the switch module is 12Gbit/s.
