What I need to simulate is a "random" selection of one-of-16 outputs.

Clock "speed" is 12.5kHz ;-)

Built of 74HCxx parts is preferred... I have a full ensemble of those
device in my PSpice library.

Thanks in advance.

How random? You could use a 16-bit PRBS made from two HC299 and an
HC86. Feed back Q14 XOR Q13, and tap out four stages to a HC154 demux.
If you need better randomness, use four PRBSes of different length.

I just need semi-random enough to test a fast AGC.
