FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The invention relates to an improved Chua's circuit more particularly, the invention relates to a Chua's circuit using a Dual Output Current Conveyer (DOCC II). The invention also implements Chua's circuit using Multiple Output Current Conveyor (MOCCII) and uses the said designed circuit to generate a hyperchaotic circuit.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

FIG. 1 shows a generalized Chua's circuit that has a parallel combination of a capacitor, C_{2}, a Chua's diode, connected to an LC tank circuit that consists of a second capacitor C_{1 }connected in parallel with a serially connected inductor, L_{1}. In addition, a first voltage, V_{1 }is defined across capacitor C_{1 }and second voltage, V_{2 }defined across capacitor C_{2 }with the positive orientation of voltages V_{1 }and V_{2 }both being at the positive end of the corresponding capacitor. Finally, there is a linear resistor R_{1 }connected between the positive terminals of each capacitor.

In a typical configuration, the nonlinear curve is piecewise linear with symmetrical slope discontinuities around current axis. It satisfies the following equation I_{R}=G_{a}V_{R}+(½)(G_{a}−G_{b}){v_{R}+B_{p}−v_{R}−B_{p}} where G_{a }and G_{b }are the slopes of respective linear portions of piecewise linear current/voltage curve characterizing the nonlinear resistor and B_{p }is the absolute value of the two voltage points at which discontinuities in the current/voltage curve lie as shown in FIG. 2. The circuit has a circuit driving subsystem, a LC tank circuit, and a response subsystem with a parallel combination of capacitor and nonlinear resistor interconnected through resistor.

By choosing values of R, L, C_{1 }and C_{2}, the circuit can operate in different operating regions for example double scroll region. Herein Chua's circuit can be made that will oscillate chaotically or quasiperiodically. Given a specified physical configuration and a specified initial state specified by V_{1}, V_{2 }and I_{L }the voltage across the capacitors C_{1 }and C_{2 }and the current through the inductor L, the evolution of Chua's circuit is deterministic, but chaotic. That is any Chua's circuit with the same physical parameters and initial conditions will follow the same course of states over time and this course will repeat itself over a very long period. However, to an observer it looks mainly like a noise. Also, systems trajectory is sensitive to initial conditions. In addition, the power spectral density function is spread over a wide range of frequencies, with the peak frequency of the fundamental being governed by LC tank circuit.

Owing to its simple circuitry, ability to demonstrate most well known routes to chaos, Chua's Circuit and Chua's Oscillator is an active topic of research in the study of nonlinear dynamical circuit and systems. Recently, there has been an increasing interest in designing inductorless Chua's circuit and Chua's oscillator. Moreover, owing to advantages, the attainability of all the three state variables of CC/CO is also attracting the designers. Simultaneously literature is also witnessing the shift of analog integrated circuit designing from voltage mode processing to currentmode processing (CMP). A number of chaotic circuits have been implemented using currentmode active building blocks. DualOutput Current Conveyor (DOCC II) is also emerging as a versatile block to implement currentmode circuits.

To improve the performance of the circuit different researchers have done extensive research. A paper by Kennedy M. P. [Kennedy M. P.; ‘Robust opamp realization of Chua's circuit’, Frequenz, 1992, 46, pp. 6680.] suggests a Chua's circuit using off shelf components. Further, in another research paper by Torres, L. A. B. and Aguirre, L. A. [Torres, L. A. B. and Aguirre, L. A.; Inductorless Chua's circuit, Electron. Lett., 2000, 36, (23), pp. 19151916.] report a Chua's circuit using operational amplifier to generate Chua's oscillation at very low frequency that is claimed to be used for biomedical operations.

In a design proposed by Morgul, O. [Morgul, O.; ‘Inductorless realization of Chua's oscillator’, Electron. Lett., 1995, 31, pp. 14031404.] synthetic inductors (using opamps) were used along with the operational amplifier thereby making design suitable for monolithic implementation.

Senani R. and Gupta S. S. [Senani R. and Gupta S. S.; ‘Implementation of Chua's chaotic circuit using current feedback opamps’, Electron. Lett., 1998, 34, (9), pp. 829830.] proposed Chua's circuit using Current Feedback Operational Amplifier (CFOA) thus making available the third state variable through the inductor (i_{L}).

In another architecture designed by Elwakil A. S. and Kennedy M. P. [Elwakil A. S. and Kennedy M. P.; ‘Improved implementation of Chua's chaotic oscillator using currentfeedback opamp’, IEEE Trans. CASI, 2000, 47, (1), pp. 76 79.] CFOA was efficiently used in Chua's circuit to provide a higher bandwidth of chaotic signal with buffered output of one state variable.

All the above architectures individually provide some or the other advantage of Chua's circuit but so far there is no circuit that simultaneously provides:

 1. Current mode operation;
 2. Use of minimum grounded passive elements;
 3. Availability of all the state variables;
 4. Availability of two state variables in form of current which further can be used further to generate other complex chaotic circuits;
 5. A circuit idea free from passive component matching;
 6. Use of lesser active components as compared to prior art 2.
 7. Generation of reduced hardware higher order chaotic circuit (also called hyperchaotic circuit) using one of the available current mentioned in 4 above.

Thus it is observed that there is a need to develop a circuit that can provide above all simultaneously.
Background of Application in Generating Hyper Chaos

Chua's circuit apart from being a device for demonstrating, studying and modeling chaotic real world system, has been proposed to generate hyperchaotic circuit [T. Kapitaniak, L. O. Chua and G. Zhong, ‘Experimental Hyperchaos in Coupled Chua's Circuits’, IEEE Trans. CASI, Vol 41, No.7, July 1994]. Referring to FIG. 3, it has been shown in ‘T. Kapitaniak, L. O. Chua and G. Zhong, ‘Experimental Hyperchaos in Coupled Chua's Circuits’, IEEE Trans. CASI, Vol 41, No.7, July 1994’ that if a Chua's (100) is coupled to a similar Chua's circuit (101) such that the nonground terminal of inductor is connected to the input of a voltage buffer (10) whose output is connected to one of the terminal of controlling resistor (11) and another end of the controlling resistor is connected the non grounded terminal of another Chua's circuit (101), the system coupling is achieved by interconnecting ‘n’ Chua's circuit in the fashion described above and the last Chua's circuit of the ring is either connected to the first Chua's circuit (100) or is left open. This type of coupling results in the following cases:

For the value of controlling resistor greater than specific value (called threshold value), all the Chua's circuit will synchronize with each other. This value of controlling resistor depends on the number of Chua's circuit used in the chain. During this state the curve between the state variable of one Chua's circuit to the corresponding state variable in another Chua's circuit of the chain will be a straight line.

For the value of controlling resistor lesser than specific value (called threshold value), the Chua's circuit will loose synchronization with each other and the system will undergo a state of hyperchaos, which is more sensitive to the initial condition. This value of controlling resistor depends on the number of Chua's circuit used in the chain. During this state the curve between the state variable of one Chua's circuit to the corresponding state variable in another Chua's circuit of the chain will not be a straight line.

With such a proposal, a monolithic implementation of the hyperchaotic circuit can be achieved by using any of the abovementioned variants of Chua's circuit (i.e. prior arts of Chua's circuit can be used to generate the hyperchaotic circuit using the above described scheme). However, use of any of these circuits will not only add the disadvantage of those proposal of Chua's circuit but also one voltage buffer and one floating resistor per coupling is required which in turn make the final circuit bulky and inefficient in terms of power consumption.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The present invention provides a Chua's circuit using Dual Output (secondgeneration) Current Conveyer (DOCC II) as one embodiment. It also provides Chua's circuit implementation using Multiple Output Current Conveyor and further it provides the design of a hyperchaotic circuit using Multiple Output Current Conveyor based Chua's circuit as other embodiments.

FIG. 1 has already been discussed under the section “background of the invention”.

FIG. 2 has also been discussed under the section “background of the invention”

FIG. 3 shows the coupling of ‘n’ Chua's circuit to achieve synchronization. The system thus formed is used to solve the following set of equations
${C}_{1}\frac{d{v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(1\right)}}{dt}=G\left({v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(1\right)}{v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(1\right)}\right)f\left({v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(1\right)}\right)$ ${C}_{2}\frac{d{v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(1\right)}}{dt}=G\left({v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(1\right)}{v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(1\right)}\right)+{i}_{L}^{\left(1\right)}+f\left({v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(1\right)}\right)+\frac{1}{{R}_{K}}\left({v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(2\right)}{v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(1\right)}\right)$ $L\frac{d{v}_{L}^{\left(1\right)}}{dt}={v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(1\right)}$ ${C}_{1}\frac{d{v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(2\right)}}{dt}=G\left({v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(2\right)}{v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(2\right)}\right)f\left({v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(2\right)}\right)$ ${C}_{2}\frac{d{v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(2\right)}}{dt}=G\left({v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(2\right)}{v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(2\right)}\right)+{i}_{L}^{\left(2\right)}+f\left({v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(2\right)}\right)+\frac{1}{{R}_{K}}\left({v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(3\right)}{v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(2\right)}\right)$ $L\frac{d{v}_{L}^{\left(2\right)}}{dt}={v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(2\right)}$ $\vdots $ ${C}_{1}\frac{d{v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(n\right)}}{dt}=G\left({v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(n\right)}{v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(n\right)}\right)f\left({v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(n\right)}\right)$ ${C}_{2}\frac{d{v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(n\right)}}{dt}=G\left({v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(n\right)}{v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(n\right)}\right)+{i}_{L}^{\left(n\right)}+f\left({v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(n\right)}\right)+\frac{1}{{R}_{K}}\left({v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(n+1\right)}{v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(n\right)}\right)$ $L\frac{d{v}_{L}^{\left(n\right)}}{dt}={v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(n\right)}$

The dynamics of the system is dependent on the controlling resistor R_{K}. This aspect has been discussed in prior art.

FIG. 4 shows the implementation of Multiple Output Current Conveyor which has been designed to by modifying the current conveyor proposed in [Seguin F. and Fabre A.; ‘New second generation current conveyor with reduced parasitic resistance and bandpass filter application’, IEEE Trans. CASI, 2001,48,(6), pp. 781785]. Herein one additional output z− is taken by using current mirrors. This scheme then corresponds to implementation of DOCCII. Further, herein two additional outputs, one similar in behavior to Z+ and one similar in behavior to z− have been added. The final scheme as shown in figure realizes MOCCII.

FIG. 5 shows a schematic block diagram of DOCC II and MOCCII. The DOCC II has six terminals. Terminals VSS and VDD are the supply voltage terminals while the terminals x, y, z+ and z− allow different voltages and current to flow in and out of the circuit. A basic DOCC II has a current mirror circuit that reflects the current of terminal x in the terminal z+. The magnitude of the current through in z− terminal and the, current through the z+ terminal is the same except for their directions. Also the voltages at the terminals x and y are the same and the current through the terminal y is zero. This can be represented in following equations.
v_{X}=v_{Y} (1)
i_{y}=0 (2)
i _{Z+} =i _{X} (3)
i _{Z−} =−i _{X} (4)

Where the subscript with current I and voltage V represents currents and voltages in the respective terminals of the DOCC II.

Further, the MOCC II has eight terminals. Terminals VSS and VDD are the supply voltage terminals while the terminals x, y, zp1, zp2 and zn1 and zn2 allow different voltages and currents to flow in and out of the circuit.

A basic MOCC II has a current mirror circuit that reflects the current of terminal x in the terminal zp1. The magnitude of the current through in zn1 terminal and the current through the zp1 terminal is the same except for their directions. Also the voltages at the terminals x and y are the same and the current through the terminal y is zero. Further zp1 and zp2 show similar behavior in terms of current movement. Similarly zn1 and zn2 show similar behavior. This can be represented in following equations.
v_{X}=v_{Y} (1)
i_{y}=0 (2)
i_{zp1}=i_{X} (3)
i _{zp2} =−i _{X} (4)
i_{zn1}=i_{X} (5)
i _{zn2} =−i _{X} (6)

Where the subscript with current I and voltage V represents currents and voltages in the respective terminals of the MOCC II.

These characteristics of the DOCC II and MOCC II can be used to realize inductive properties as follows.

FIG. 6A shows DOCC II based inductor. This inductor has two DOCC II D_{3 }and D_{4 }having their x terminals grounded through the resistors R_{L1}, R_{L2}. A capacitor C_{L }having its one terminal grounded and second terminal coupled to z_{+ }terminal of DOCC II D_{3 }and y terminal of DOCC II D_{4}. The terminal z of D_{4 }and y of D_{3 }are joined together to connect the one terminal of the input supply.

When a voltage v is applied at node 1, a similar voltage is induced at node 2 that is at the x terminal of D_{3 }according to the equation 1 of DOCC II. Hence resulting in current i_{2 }through the resistor R_{L2 }given by
i_{2}=v/R_{L2}.

Because of the relations 3 and 4, current through terminal x is reflected at terminals L and z_{+ }accordingly. Thus producing a voltage across the capacitor C_{L }which is seen by the y terminal of D4 and is given by
${v}_{3}=\int \frac{v}{{C}_{L}{R}_{\mathrm{L2}}}dt$

The voltage V_{3 }is then induced at the x terminal of D_{4 }according to the relation 1 thus causing a current i5 through resistor R_{L1 }that is then, reflected in the terminals z+ and z− of D4. The current i5 through the resistor R_{L1 }can be given as
${i}_{5}=\frac{{v}_{3}}{{R}_{\mathrm{L1}}}=\int \frac{v}{{C}_{L}{R}_{\mathrm{L2}}{R}_{\mathrm{L1}}}dt$

From FIG. 2 it is clear that the current i_{5}=i_{L }because of the relation 2, thus
${i}_{L}=\int \frac{v}{{C}_{L}{R}_{\mathrm{L2}}{R}_{\mathrm{L1}}}dt$

From above following equation can be written:
${C}_{L}{R}_{\mathrm{L1}}{R}_{\mathrm{L2}}\frac{d{i}_{L}}{dt}=v$

The characteristic equation of an inductor is given by:
$L\frac{d{i}_{L}}{dt}=v$

On comparing above two equations we get:
L=C_{L}R_{L1}R_{L2}

Thus it can be said that the circuit shown is FIG. 6A is equivalent to an inductor of value determined by L=C_{L}R_{L1}R_{L2}. Further it is important to note that the circuit provides terminals z+ and z− of D_{4 }and D_{3 }respectively to tap current flowing through the inductor and the voltage across capacitor (of tank circuit) in the form of current. To be specific, whereas D_{3 }provides voltage across capacitor in the form of current, current through the inductor is available at z_{+ }terminal of D_{4}.

Similar results can be achieved by using MOCCII by replacing terminal x of DOCCII by terminal x of MOCCII, y of DOCCII by terminal y of MOCCII, z+ of DOCCII by terminal z1+ of MOCCII, z− of DOCCII by terminal z1− of MOCCII, VDD of DOCCII by terminal VDD of MOCCII, VSS of DOCCII by terminal VSS of MOCCII and rest of the terminals of MOCCII i.e. z2+ and z2− remaining floating. Thus MOCC II based inductor is also realized as shown in FIG. 6B.

FIG. 7A shows a schematic block diagram of DOCC II based negative resistor. The DOCC II has its x terminal connected to a resistance R3 whose other terminal is connected to ground and has a resistance R1 connected between its z+ and y terminals.

A Dual Output Current Conveyer based nonlinear device basically works in three different regions as depicted in IV Characteristics shown in FIG. 8. The region of operation can be classified as follows:

Negative saturation region is the region when the input voltage to this nonlinear device is highly negative with respect to ground while the positive saturation region, when the input voltage to this nonlinear device is highly positive with respect to ground. The input voltage is the voltage applied at the y terminal of the nonlinear device described in FIG. 7A. The Linear region is when the input voltage to this nonlinear device is comparable to supply voltage.

In the negative or positive saturation regions when the input voltages are either highly negative or positive, the z_{+ }terminal of the DOCCII assumes a constant voltage (negative or positive respectively) thus allowing a current to flow through the resistance R3 exhibiting positive resistive properties beyond a Break point (Bp) shown in FIG. 8.

In the linear region when the input voltage is comparable to the supply voltage, the current flowing inside z_{+ }terminal equals current through x terminal according to the relation 3. Also the voltage at the x terminal and the voltage at the y terminals are similar as per the relation 1 for a DOCCII. Thus current through the input supply terminal i_{in }is equal to the current through resistor R3 and hence the current ix through the terminal x. Thus the voltage at the terminal y can be given as:
v _{y} =−i _{x} *R3
Or
i _{x} /v _{y}=−1/R3=m _{1}

Where m_{1 }is the slope in the linear region.

Owing to its linearity in the three regions, positive linearity in positive and negative saturation region and negative linearity in linear region, the nonlinear device behaves as a nonlinear resistor with positive resistance at the positive and negative saturation region and negative resistance in the linear region.

Hence the DOCC II of FIG. 7A exhibits a negative resistance in the linear region as shown in corresponding IV Characteristics in the FIG. 8.

Similar results can be achieved by using MOCCII by replacing terminal x of DOCCII by terminal x of MOCCII, y of DOCCII by terminal y of MOCCII, z+ of DOCCII by terminal zp1 of MOCCII, z− of DOCCII by terminal zn1 of MOCCII, VDD of DOCCII by terminal VDD of MOCCII, VSS of DOCCII by terminal VSS of MOCCII and rest of the terminals of MOCCII i.e. zp2 and zn2 remaining floating. Thus MOCC II based negative resistor is also realized as shown in FIG. 7B.

FIG. 9A shows two DOCC II connected in parallel to achieve a variable slope in the linear region and specified break point as required for the Chua's circuit. The total conductance of parallel combination of the two DOCC II is a linear addition of the individual conductance of each DOCC II. Thus IV characteristics of the parallel combination exhibit a variable slope as shown in FIG. 2. Note that this type of nonlinear resistor is also called as Chua's diode.

Similar results can be achieved by using MOCCII by replacing terminal x of DOCCII by terminal x of MOCCII, y of DOCCII by terminal y of MOCCII, z+ of DOCCII by terminal zp1 of MOCCII, z− of DOCCII by terminal zn1 of MOCCII, VDD of DOCCII by terminal VDD of MOCCII, VSS of DOCCII by terminal VSS of MOCCII and rest of the terminals of MOCCII i.e. zp2 and zn2 remaining floating. Thus MOCC II based Chua's diode is also realized as shown in FIG. 9B.

Without limiting the scope of the invention to the discussed embodiment and the values thereof, the invention will now be discussed with reference to circuit shown in FIG. 10. A person skilled in art will appreciate that the invention can also be practiced with other embodiments without deviating from the concept described hereinafter.

FIG. 10 shows a schematic block diagram of a Chua's circuit according to one embodiment of the present invention. The circuit shown is basically a current mode implementation of Chua's circuit using a Dual Output second generation Current Conveyor. The Chua's chaotic circuit according to the present invention comprises four Dual Output Second Generation Current Conveyor D1, D2, D3 and D4. The DOCC II D3 and D4 forming an inductor as described in FIG. 3 and D1, D2 forming a nonlinear component as described in the FIG. 9A. The capacitors C_{1 }and C_{2 }are the first and second energy storing elements of the Chua's circuit and are connected to y terminals of D_{3}, D_{2 }respectively. Resistor R is the passive component of the Chua's circuit and is connected to the y terminals of the D_{3 }and D_{2}. The terminals y of the D_{1 }and D_{2 }are coupled together and the terminals x of the D_{1 }and D_{2 }are connected to the ground through resistive load R_{4 }and R_{3}. The terminals z+ of D_{1 }and D_{2 }are connected to their y terminals through resistances R_{1 }and R_{2 }and the y terminals of the D_{2 }and D_{1 }are connected as shown in FIG. 9A.

For this Chua's circuit the equation can be written as:
${C}_{2}\frac{d{V}_{2}}{dt}=\frac{1}{R}\left({V}_{1}{V}_{2}\right)g\left({V}_{1}\right)$
${C}_{1}\frac{d{V}_{1}}{dt}=\frac{1}{R}\left({V}_{2}{V}_{1}\right)+{i}_{L}$
${C}_{L}{R}_{\mathrm{L1}}{R}_{\mathrm{L2}}\frac{d{i}_{L}}{dt}={V}_{1}$
where,
$g\left({V}_{1}\right)={m}_{0}{V}_{1}+\frac{1}{2}\left({m}_{0}{m}_{1}\right)\left[\uf603{V}_{1}+{B}_{p}\uf604\uf603{V}_{1}{B}_{p}\uf604\right]$

The value of m_{0 }and m_{1 }are determined by resistor values R1, R2, R3, R4 and the supply VSS1, VSS2, VDD1, VDD2.

FIG. 12 shows the results obtained by simulations of the above Chua's circuit for values selected as follows. This is called the double scrolloperating region.

Non Linear Resistance:

R_{1}=190 Ω, R_{2}=25.6 kΩ, R_{3}=2 kΩ, R_{4}=2.2 kΩ and VSS_{1}=−7V, VDD_{1}=7.8V VSS_{2}=−7.8V VDD_{2}=7V

Inductor:

C_{L}=100 nF, R_{L1}=400 Ω, R_{L2}=400 Ω.

Other Components:

C_{1}=100 nF, C_{2}=10 nF R=1.550k.

Similar results can be achieved by using MOCCII by replacing terminal x of DOCCII by terminal x of MOCCII, y of DOCCII by terminal y of MOCCII, z+ of DOCCII by terminal z1+ of MOCCII, z− of DOCCII by terminal z1− of MOCCII, VDD of DOCCII by terminal VDD of MOCCII, VSS of DOCCII by terminal VSS of MOCCII and rest of the terminals of MOCCII i.e. z2+ and z2− remaining floating. Thus MOCC II based Chua's Circuit is also realized as shown in FIG. 11.

As described earlier the Chua's circuit can be coupled by using one voltage buffer and one floating resistor using the scheme presented in FIG. 2. Herein it is actually solving the following equations of the system
${C}_{1}\frac{d{v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(1\right)}}{dt}=G\left({v}_{{C}_{2}}^{\left(1\right)}{v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(1\right)}\right)f\left({v}_{{C}_{1}}^{\left(1\right)}\right)$

Here n is taken to be equal to 5. RK is the controlling resistor whose value describes the behavior of the entire system.

Present invention tries to achieve the solution of above equations without any additional hardware by proposing the scheme as shown in FIG. 13.

Referring to FIG. 13, 11 of Chua's circuit (100) is connected to 17 of same Chua's circuit 100, 11 of Chua's circuit is also connected to 18 of next Chua's circuit (101), similarly 18 of Chua's circuit (100) is connected with 11 of previous Chua's circuit (99), thereby forming a ring using several Chua's circuit connected in similar and symmetric fashion. RL2 of each Chua's circuit acts as a controlling resistor and the coupling is achieved without additional resistor or voltage buffer. The additional advantage of the present proposal of hyper chaotic circuit is that the controlling resistor is grounded and hence can be beneficial in easy monolithic implementation.

For the above stated values of components and RL1=300 Ohm and RL2=600 ohm for Chua's circuit designed using MOCCII and using similar Chua's circuit for coupling with the scheme as shown in FIG. 13, the system of FIG. 13 thus derived is a hyperchaotic. This is proved by the fact that none of the Chua's circuit is in synchronization with each other as is reflected by the simulation results shown in FIG. 14.
Advantages

A DOCCII/MOCCII based implementation of Chua's circuit is presented. The circuit has advantages of grounded resistor and capacitor, minimum active and passive component and accessibility of current across inductor. Moreover, apart from these advantages the voltage across capacitor (of tank circuit) is also available in the form of current at high impedance node. One of the applications of this current is in generating hyperchaos in coupled Chua's circuit with reduced hardware.

The Chua's circuit uses a DOCC II/MOCC II based inductor and nonlinear component that allows tapping of current through the inductor and voltage across the capacitor of tank circuit without requiring any additional hardware. The available third state variable can be observed and therefore it is possible to make more complex chaotic circuits using this additional information. Also the inductor of the present invention does not use any additional components like capacitors and resistors as compared to the prior arts.

Since the present invention does not use operational amplifiers rather it uses current conveyors it operates in the current mode. Also the invention does not require a precise component matching unlike prior arts that used opamps for realizing Chua's circuit.

The invention also relates the use of available current in designing reduced hardware hyperchaos circuit. The final hyperchaotic circuit thus designed offers several advantages like minimum active and passive components for coupled Chua's circuit hyper chaotic circuit, coupling of Chua's circuit without additional hardware as voltage buffer and floating resistor, controlling resistor being grounded etc. These advantages are nonexistent in case the same coupling is achieved using any of the prior art of Chua's circuit.
