Crossbar switch decoder for vector signaling codes

An efficient decoding of vector signaling codes is obtained using a circuit that ranks received signal levels, designates ranked values as representing particular code elements, and translates those particular code elements into a decoded result. An optimized ranking circuit combines analog crossbar switching of signal values with comparators that provide digital results. These elements may be repetitively tiled into processing arrays capable of larger ranking operations, or iteratively applied to selected portions of the data set under control of a sequencer or controller.
