Many applications require the generation of random numbers. These random numbers are useful for applications such as communication protocols, cryptography, and device individualization. Generating random numbers often requires the use of expensive dedicated hardware. Using the two independent clocks available on the MSP430F2xx family of devices, it is possible to generate random numbers without such hardware.
