Random Number Generator Example

The Random Number Generator (RNG) Example demonstrates the use of the RNG peripheral by obtaining a random number and printing it in a COM listener (for example PUTTY) using UART.

The application starts by configuring simple_uart and starting the RNG peripheral. The main loop prints the random number and waits for 100 milliseconds.

The name of the example is rng_pca10028. If you are not using the Keil Pack Installer, you can find the source code and project file of the example in the following folder: <InstallFolder>\Nordic\nrf51\examples\peripheral\rng


Test the Random Number Generator Example application by performing the following steps:

  1. Compile and program the application.
  2. Start a COM listener like PUTTY and connect to the used COM port at 38400 baud rate.
  3. Observe that a random number is updated every 100 milliseconds.
