Abstract

Although the memristor is produced physically, it is not commercially available yet. For this reason the testing and verifying of memristor-based systems are performed only by using simulation tools and emulator circuits composed of generally discrete components. In this study, field programmable analog array (FPAA) as a reconfigurable hardware platform is introduced for the experimental testing and verifying of memristor-based chaotic systems. By using this platform, it is possible to implement several memristor-based chaotic systems characterized with different nonlinear functions on a unique hardware in a reconfigurable and programmable manner without the need for different emulators. For this purpose, three memristor-based chaotic systems were constructed on this platform and their behaviors were verified experimentally.
