The extended-interconnect cellular-logic processor (EX-CLIP) was designed to take advantage of the potential of optics to implement a variety of nonlocal interconnect patterns. This perfect-shuffle pattern was selected initially for benchmarking both because it forms the basis for a number of significant fast algorithms and because it is sufficient on its own as a basis. A 2-D optical perfect shuffle can be implemented in a single cycle of a loop circuit independent of the array size.
