Abstract : Research is presented which deals with the principles of construction of devices which are electrical generators of random signals and which use radioactive decay as the master statistical process. A block diagram of a generator of a generalized telegraph signal is considered. From the data given, it follows that the use of radioactive decay as the master physical process makes it possible not only to simplify the design of devices for generating standard random processes, but to improve the quality of their characteristics, e.g., their resistance to the influence of external conditions. Moreover, it should be noted that random signals obtained can be used for the external triggering of standard pulse generators. (Author)
