Conventional nonlinear feedback shift registers (NLFSRs) use the Fibonacci configuration in which the feedback is applied to the last bit only. In this paper, we show how to transform a Fibonacci NLFSR into an equivalent NLFSR in the Galois configuration, in which the feedback can be applied to every bit. Such a transformation can potentially reduce the depth of the circuits implementing feedback functions, thus decreasing the propagation time and increasing the throughput.
