<p><b>Abstract</b>—A new multiple-sequence generator scheme to generate a set of deterministic <it>ordered</it> sequence of patterns followed by random patterns is presented in this paper. This scheme is based on an inverted nonlinear autonomous machine which utilizes a two-dimension-like LFSR with nonlinear inverters. A systematic procedure is also presented to obtain the autonomous machine which is more regular in the structure and utilizes less hardware. The generated deterministic sequence of patterns, which may have <it>ordered</it> and <it>repeated</it> patterns, and the random patterns are applicable to <it>sequential circuit testing</it>.</p>
