Original Paper


In this paper, a meminductor emulator and an active memristor emulator are designed to construct a new chaotic circuit. The initial-condition-triggered amplitude, frequency and parameter space boosting are investigated. The system owns homogenous, heterogeneous and extreme multistabilities at the same time. Various coexisting attractors with different offsets, amplitudes and frequencies are observed and analyzed. Furthermore, the presented circuit is implemented by analog circuit and DSP platform. The mentioned unique dynamic features are confirmed in the experiments. Experimental results indicate the presented system and its initial-condition-triggered features can be realized in DSP digital system. Since the system owns variable amplitude, frequency and parameter space, it has great potential value in encryption engineering fields.
