Alternate Tap Positions

Here are some selected alternate tap positions which can be used with cascaded 8-bit shift registers used in the fibonacci configuration to obtain a maximal length sequence. These are suitable for shift register IC's where outputs of registers 6, 7, and 8 of each circuit are available. Cases with 2 and with 4 taps are shown. (This list is not complete.)
