True random number generation is crucial in cyber-security applications. Proposed is a voltage-controlled true random number generator that is inherently field-programmable. This facilitates increased entropy as a randomness source because there is more than one configuration state which lends itself to more compact and low-power architectures. It is evaluated through electrical characterisation and statistically through industry-standard randomness tests. To the best of the author's knowledge, it is one of the most efficient designs to date with respect to hardware design metrics.
