Cellular Automata (CA) have been found to make good pseudo-random number generators (PRNGs), and these CA-based PRNGs are well suited for implementation on Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). To improve the quality of the random numbers that are generated, the basic CA structure is enhanced in two ways. First, the addition of a super-rule to each CA cell is considered. The resulting Self-Programmable CA (SPCA) uses the super-rule to determine when to make a dynamic rule change in each CA… CONTINUE READING
