Abstract

The behavior of a novel frequency divider circuit using negative differential resistance (NDR) circuit is studied. This NDR circuit is made of resistors (R) and bipolar-junction-transistor (BJT) devices. It can show the NDR characteristic in its combined current-voltage curve by suitably arranging the resistances. We call this NDR circuit as R-BJT-NDR circuit in this paper. A chaos circuit consisted of an R-BJT-NDR device, an inductor, and a capacitor is investigated. It demonstrates the periodadding sequences which appear in its bifurcation diagram to perform the frequency division. We investigate the effects of the input frequency and input amplitude on the operation.
