Synchronized True Random Number Generator

US Patent Application 20180039485A1

A synchronized true random number generator (SRNG) includes a pulse source that provides a synchronized pulse signal synchronized with a known time, an oscillator to make a clock signal, a time synthesizer, and a triggerable true random number generator (TRNG). Another embodiment includes a plurality of independent triggerable TRNGs, separated by a separation distance, that produce free TRNG output. A separation distance is a distance greater than the product of the speed of light (C) multiplied by the generation period. A generation period of a TRNG is the period from the start of generating a random number until the random number can be determined. A triggerable single-photon-detector TRNG comprises first and second single-photon detectors, a light source, first and second pulse-generator circuits, and a first-pulse detector. A triggerable photon-shot-noise TRNG contains a photonic detector comprising two photodiodes connected back-to-back, and light source (e.g., an LED) providing illumination to the two photodiodes; a current-to-voltage converter; an amplifier; and a comparator for converting the amplified voltage noise to a binary random bit output.

Random Number Generator and Generation Method

US Patent Numbers 6,324,558, 6,763,364, 7,096,242 and 7,752,247 (Under License)

An RNG circuit is connected to the parallel port of a computer. The circuit includes a flat source of white noise and a CMOS amplifier circuit compensated in the high frequency range. A low-frequency cut-off is selected to maintain high band-width yet eliminate the 1/f amplifier noise tail. A CMOS comparator with a 10 nanosecond rise time converts the analog signal to a binary one. A shift register converts the serial signal to a 4-bit parallel one at a sample rate selected at the knee of the serial dependence curve. Two levels of XOR defect correction produce a BRS at 20 kHz, which is converted to a 4-bit parallel word, latched and buffered. The entire circuit is powered from the data pins of the parallel port. A device driver interface in the computer operates the RNG. The randomness defects with various levels of correction and sample rates are calculated and the RNG is optimized before manufacture.

BLOOD CONSTITUENT MEASURING DEVICE AND METHOD

US Patent Number 4,407,290

A non-invasive blood constituent measuring device and method are disclosed for measuring changes in blood thickness of predetermined blood constituents relative to total change in blood thickness at a test area to thereby determine the concentration of such constituents in the blood in a living body, which measured constituents may be, for example, hemoglobin and oxyhemoglobin to enable determination of oxygen saturation of blood. The device includes a plurality of light emitting diodes operationally controlled by timing circuitry for sequentially emitting light at different predetermined wavelengths toward a blood containing tissue sample, such as an ear lobe. A linear sensor receives emitted light passing through the sample and a train of AC modulated pulses indicative thereof is formed and then the signal representative of the light received from each emitter is scaled so that the DC components of each are normalized to a predetermined reference level with the pulse train being divided into channels at a decoder where remaining DC offset is removed and the DC component in each channel is then removed at a low pass filter, after which the AC signals in each channel are multiplexed and converted to a digital signal indicative of changes in the thickness of blood constituents for processing in a digital processor to determine therefrom the saturation of the measured blood constituents. A test unit is also included for testing operation of the device by introducing known AC modulated test signals into the circuitry.
