Unix on Rich's p16 is a period48 oscillator that is composed of a unix and Rich's p16. Although it is composed of two oscillators of smaller periods (6 and 16 respectively), it is considered nontrivial because it contains a single cell that is alive in one generation and dead in the other 47 phases of the oscillator. In terms of its 52 cells, it is the smallest known nontrivial period 48 oscillator, though a smaller, trivial one is known.
