Stand-Alone Random Number Generator
The RNG-01 Random Number Generator is a lab quality instrument. It uses the immutable randomness of radioactivity decay to generate random numbers. Quantum mechanics states that the nuclear decay of atoms, are fundamentally random and cannot be predicted. Our device has a mini-Geiger counter that detects background radiation. The detection of a radioactive particle being a random event use to initiate the generation of a random number. The output of the built-in Geiger counter is monitored by a PIC microcontroller. The PIC microcontroller is rotating numbers inside a register at approximately 1,000,000 numbers a second. When a radioactive particle (Random Event) is detected the microcontroller stops the rotation of numbers, reads the current number in the register and produces a random number.
The Random Number Generator (RNG-01) will produce approximately one to three random numbers every minute from background radiation. These true random numbers are useful for data encryption (cryptography), statistical mechanics, probability, gaming, neural networks and disorder systems, PSI and ESP testing, micro PK experiments, etc.
The RNG-01 allows selection of random number ranges: 1-2, 1-4, 1-8, 1-16, 1-32, 1-64 and 1-128 . It displays random numbers generated on LCD and outputs the random number via a serial port. When range selection is 1-4, the LCD can also display the running tally of the four numbers generated to verify distribution of random numbers. The RNG-01 also has a four color LED output.
The Random Number Generator is currently available as a kit. Kit contains: PC Board, LCD screen, pre programmed PIC microcontroller and all necessary components for construction.
