This paper proposes a novel nonlinear modulating function approach for generating n-scroll chaotic attractors based on a general jerk circuit. The systematic nonlinear modulating function methodology developed here can arbitrarily design the swings, widths, slopes, breakpoints, equilibrium points, and shapes of the n-scroll chaotic attractors via the adjustable sawtooth wave, triangular wave, and transconductor wave functions. A block circuit diagram is designed for hardware implementation of various 3 ̃ 12-scroll attractors via switchings of the switch linkages. This is the first time to experimentally verify a 12-scroll chaotic attractor generated by an analog circuit under the laboratory environment. © 2005 IEEE.
