We present a new design for random number generation. The outputs of linear feedback shift
registers (LFSRs) act as continuous inputs to the two boundaries of a one-dimensional (1-D)
Elementary Cellular Automata (ECA). The results show superior randomness features and the
output string has passed the Diehard statistical battery of tests. The design is good candidate
for parallel random number generation, has strong correlation immunity and it is inherently
amenable for VLSI implementation.
