Abstract : This patent discloses a generator for producing random binary bits comprising in combination, means for producing a random noise electrical signal, means coupled to the output of said signal producing means for converting said random noise electrical signal into a variable width square wave signal having polarities proportional to the polarities thereof at any given instant, means connected to the output of said converting means for producing a plurality of constant frequency pulses the number of which is proportional to the widths of those portions of the aforesaid variable width square wave signal having the same polarity, and means effectively connected to said pulse producing means for timely sampling said pulses in terms of binary bits.
