In this paper, We consider two-dimensional Maximum Length Cellular Automata (2-D MLCA) as an extension of the 1-D MLCA. 2-D MLCA can display much better random patterns than those generated by 1-D CA and LFSR. To generate random pattern, a CA should have a maximum length cycle. So, it is necessary to find MLCA that the characteristic polynomial of the transition matrix is primitive. New boundary conditions of 3 types are proposed and some rules having primitive polynomials of 2-D MLCA are found.
