The electronic circuit is composed by a network of linear passive elements connected to a nonlinear active component called *Chua’s diode* [1].

The set of differential equations that describes the circuit behavior is

where , , *L* and *R* are the values of the passive linear elements, and denotes the internal resistance of the inductor winding. The static nonlinearity of Chua’s diode is the piecewise linear function given by

Estimated (by Unscented Kalman Filtering) physical values of the circuit are :

*R* = 1673.6 ohms

= 30.136 micro Farads

= 185.66 micro Farads

*L* = 52.282 Henries. This is achieved not with a physical inductor but with a Gyrator [2]

= -1.365 mili smho (1/ohms)

= -1.801 mili smho (1/ohms)

= 1.739 volts

= 0 ohms (because of gyrator).

Experimental data collected by Leonardo Torres can be dowloaded. There are four columns that are the time, *X*, *Y*, and *Z*, respectively. They were used to provide this representation of the double-scroll attractor (Fig. 1).
