A novel random number generation (RNG) architecture of particular importance in VLSI for fine-grained parallel processing is proposed. It is demonstrated that efficient parallel pseudorandom sequence generation can be accomplished using certain elementary one-dimensional cellular automata (two binary states per site and only nearest-neighbor connections). The pseudorandom numbers appear in para
