Abstract:
One of the basic measures of the performance of any digital communication system is Bit error rate (BER) test. For the digital data source, it is common to use a pseudorandom number generator (PRNG). Linear feedback shift registers (LFSRs) are undoubtedly the best known register-based PRNGs. The purpose of this research is to develop a digital true random number generator using linear feedback shift register (LFSR) that can be synthesized using standard digital design tools. Random number generators will be required to protect the medical, financial and personal data of entities connected to these networks. Because of their compactness, fast bit-level operations, and the exponential increase of their period with the width of the shift register, LFSRs have enjoyed success in many hardware-based simulations and digital circuit testing.
