A new circuitry design based on Chua's circuit for generating n-scroll attractors (n = 1, 2, 3,...) is proposed. In this design, the nonlinear resistor in Chua's circuit is constructed via a systematical procedure using basic building blocks. With the proposed construction scheme, the slopes and break points of the v-i characteristic of the circuit can be tuned independently, and chaotic attractors with an even or an odd number of scrolls can be easily generated. Distinct attractors with n-scrolls (n = 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10) obtained with this simple experimental set-up are demonstrated.
