Abstract:

The shift-register counter is a device comprised of a small number of digital flip-flops interconnected to emit a long, predetermined, nonrepeating series of binary bits. The theory of their design is examined, concentrating on the synthesis of counters able to create extremely long sequences by sequentially modifying the effective connections or operators in the feedback loops. Non-linear shift-registers are examined from several different points of view, and then the insight so afforded is applied to generalize upon the possible directions which might yield maximal length sequences with a minimum of equipment.
