RC Autonomous Circuits with Chaotic Behavior

The paper presents obtained results with applying the "Semi-systematic procedure for producing the chaos from quasi-sinusoidal oscillators". We applied this procedure to RC autonomous circuit and obtained two new autonomous circuits with chaotic behaviour. The two obtained circuits are presented. The usage of various non-linear devices is examined.

Chua's Circuit in Spread Spectrum Communication Systems

Communication system via chaotic modulations is demonstrated. It contains the well-known chaotic circuits as its basic elements - Chua's circuits. The proposed system has some standard properties of spread spectrum communication. The following advantage is found in simulations: a) Transmitted signals have broad spectra. b) Secure communications are possible in the sense that the better parameter matching is required in order to recover the signal. c) The circuit structure of the communication system is most simple and communication systems are easily built at a small outlay. Finally computer simulations are given to examine the validity of this system.

Synthesis of Optimized Piecewise-Linear Systems Using Similarity
Transformation. Part III: Higher-Order Systems

State models of dynamical systems used as prototypes in their practical realization are optimized from the viewpoint of minimum eigenvalue sensitivities with respect to the change of the individual parameters. In the paper the previously published optimization design procedure for the second-order linear and piecewise-linear (PWL) autonomous dynamical systems [2] is extended also for the higher-order systems. Results obtained give the possibility to realize the third-order basic chaotic or the fourth-order hyper-chaotic oscillators.

Biquad Based on a Generalized Divider Structure

The paper deals with the biquad based on a generalized divider structure. This principle can be considered as an effective way of universal filter and equalizers synthesis, which easily realizes any general transfer function. An attention is devoted to the derivation of optimum design conditions. As shown, these conditions strongly depend on the amplifier type used. The results obtained are illustrated by some design examples.

Autocompensative System for Measurement of the Capacitances

A simple and successful design of an autocompensative system with flip-flop sensor for measurement of capacitances is presented. The analysis of the sensor is based on the state description with the vertical rise segments of the control pulse. The theoretical results are compared with measured data and good agreement is reported.

Thermosensitive IC for Relative Temperature Determination

The functioning algorithm and the scheme of the transducer unit applied in thermosensitive IC with relative temperature reading are proposed in this paper. The principal algorithm of functioning is in the formation of current with linear dependence on absolute temperature by additional transduction of current into differential signal with value determined by relative temperature scale.
