Andrew Warren [fastfwd at ix.netcom.com] of Fast Forward Engineering - San Diego, California says
Load a register called "RANDOM" with any non-zero value, then call this routine each time you'd like a new pseudo-random value:LFSR: RLF RANDOM,W RLF RANDOM,W BTFSC RANDOM,4 XORLW 1 BTFSC RANDOM,5 XORLW 1 BTFSC RANDOM,3 XORLW 1 MOVWF RANDOM RETLW 0
Scott Dattalo says:[with the double RLF at the start of this routine,] Andy is implementing 'roll left' where the most significant bit of RANDOM will get copied to least significant position. This is how it works. The first RLF will copy the most significant bit of RANDOM into the carry. What ever was in the carry prior to the first RLF will get copied into the least significant bit position - but we don't care. Also, since the destination is the W register, the variable RANDOM is unaffected. The second RLF repeats the same rotate operation, but this time the carry has been initialized to the MS bit of random. So this second rotate will copy the MS bit into the least significant bit. All of the other bits are of course shifted left one bit position. See?
Or, if you prefer, you can use this routine (written by Marv Isaacman) instead:MARV: MOVLW 01DH CLRC RLF RANDOM SKPNC XORWF RANDOM RETLW 0

Randomize ;Rnew = Rold * 221 + 53 ;221 = 256 - 32 - 4 + 1 ;256 can be eliminated ;so we need to calculate Rnew = Rold * (1 - 32 - 4) + 53 using ;truncating arithmetic ;or Rnew = Rold * (-32 - 3) + 53 clrc rlf Number, 1 swapf Number, 0 andlw 0xE0 rrf Number, 1 addwf Number, 0 addwf Number, 0 addwf Number, 0 sublw 0x35 movwf Number

+These are implementations of the Galois LFSR (Linear Feedback Shift Register) 8-bit random generator (tested) The next one is not a funtion.
