The modular design approach we propose for fault-tolerant Boolean n-cube architectures lets us reduce hardware cost and increase system reliability, while assuring high performance during message routing. Use of a specific module size with shared links and switches during reconfiguration helps keep system costs low. Though this strategy may increase the number of routing steps needed to transmit a message between nodes, routing performance nonetheless surpasses competing approaches, if we consider switching delays.
