We propose a simple continuous-time system for chaos generation based on a third-order abstract canonical mathematical model. Nonlinearity in this model is introduced by a bipolar switching constant, which reflects the behavior of a digital inverter. A simple area efficient implementation of the system in a 1.2 μ CMOS process is presented. Experimental results from a tested chip are shown.
