A photonic switching fabric is described which includes an interconnection network made-up of electro-optic switches. The main characteristics both of the whole interconnection network and of the components are summarized. An electronic processor is designed in order to exploit the self-routing behavior of the network. Finally, the timing problem is considered and the delay performance is evaluated.
