I'm trying to procedurally texture some future tech. It has small squares that seem random. I envision making a noise texture pixelated, and then animating the pixilations to move over a cube object, looking very futuristic.

Ideally, I'd layer many pixelation colors over one another so the squares are like a kaleidoscope fading in and out.

If you take a Voronoi Texture's Randomness parameter all the way to 0 it generates squares like you want.

You can take the Color output into a Noise Texture like you suspected and generate lots of different outputs. What I did here was put a Color Ramp on the other side set to Constant to isolate groups of these squares to use as a mask for whatever you want.

But you can imagine animating some of these values and generating any number of visualizations.

Just to add to @Allen's answer.
If you also want the borders, just add a brick texture into the setup
