Generator may refer to:
  • Electrical generator
    Electrical generator
    In electricity generation, an electric generator is a device that converts mechanical energy to electrical energy. A generator forces electric charge to flow through an external electrical circuit. It is analogous to a water pump, which causes water to flow...

  • Generator (computer science)
    Generator (computer science)
    In computer science, a generator is a special routine that can be used to control the iteration behaviour of a loop. A generator is very similar to a function that returns an array, in that a generator has parameters, can be called, and generates a sequence of values...

    , a specialized routine that acts like an iterator
  • A program which produces a stream of data
  • Pseudorandom number generator
    Pseudorandom number generator
    A pseudorandom number generator , also known as a deterministic random bit generator , is an algorithm for generating a sequence of numbers that approximates the properties of random numbers...

    , producer of a sequence of random or nearly-random numbers
  • Prime number generator, a producer of the ordered sequence of prime number
    Prime number
    A prime number is a natural number greater than 1 that has no positive divisors other than 1 and itself. A natural number greater than 1 that is not a prime number is called a composite number. For example 5 is prime, as only 1 and 5 divide it, whereas 6 is composite, since it has the divisors 2...

  • A zero-generator, the pseudo-device /dev/zero
    /dev/zero is a special file in Unix-like operating systems that provides as many null characters as are read from it. One of the typical uses is to provide a character stream for initializing data storage.-Function:...

  • Generator matrix
    Generator matrix
    In coding theory, a generator matrix is a basis for a linear code, generating all its possible codewords.If the matrix is G and the linear code is C,where w is a codeword of the linear code C, c is a row vector, and a bijection exists between w and c. A generator matrix for an q-code has...

    , a matrix whose rows can generate all the elements of a linear code
    Linear code
    In coding theory, a linear code is an error-correcting code for which any linear combination of codewords is also a codeword. Linear codes are traditionally partitioned into block codes and convolutional codes, although Turbo codes can be seen as a hybrid of these two types. Linear codes allow for...

  • Random test generator
    Random test generator
    Random test generators are a type of computer software that is used in functional verification of microprocessors. Their primary use lies in providing input stimulus to a device under test....

    , used in functional verification
    Functional verification
    Functional verification, in electronic design automation, is the task of verifying that the logic design conforms to specification. In everyday terms, functional verification attempts to answer the question "Does this proposed design do what is intended?" This is a complex task, and takes the...

     of microprocessors
    A microprocessor incorporates the functions of a computer's central processing unit on a single integrated circuit, or at most a few integrated circuits. It is a multipurpose, programmable device that accepts digital data as input, processes it according to instructions stored in its memory, and...
