A method for path allocation for use with three-stage ATM switches that feature multiple channels between the switch modules in adjacent stages is described. The method is suited to hardware implementation using parallelism to achieve a very short execution time. This allows path allocation to be performed anew in each time slot. A detailed description of the necessary hardware is presented. This hardware counts the number of cells requesting each output module, allocates a path through the intermediate stage of the switch to each cell, and generates a routing tag for each cell, indicating the path assigned to it
