Compactness of design and relatively low power dissipation are essential properties for ROBIns when it is desired to put many of them together on a single board. In the CRUSH design study these aspects are addressed, while at the same time it has been attempted to provide good programmability with respect to the required buffer management and also to provide a good testability of the design. How to build a ROB Complex with these ROBIns is also an element of this study.
