HDL Tip of the Month
When writing a VHDL test bench, use x <= transport y after n ns; to catch intermediate states. Reference: http://www.gmvhdl.com/delay.htm
Chaos Circuit
Chua's circuit is our wierd circuit of the month. This analog circuit can easily be built with off the shelf components, or it can be simulated.  It is a realization of the double scroll strange attractor from chaos theory.  More information can be found on Professor Leon Chua's website.
Chua's circuit
More chaos theory to come:  In an upcoming newsletter we will explore the logistic function and its bifurcation diagram.
