A novel concept and structure for a high-speed time division switch operating in the gigabit/second range are presented. The basic concept is to use the high-speed memory in the time switch effectively by means of a slow writing/fast reading method. N numbers of speech data are written in parallel during N clock times and read serially during one clock time for one switched datum. By using the concept and high-speed memories that we have, a data switching system which approaches the memory and read cycle limit can be realized with a proper time margin.
