An improved realization of mixed-mode chaotic circuit which has both autonomous and nonautonomous chaotic dynamics is proposed. Central to this study is inductorless realization of mixed-mode chaotic circuit using FTFN-based inductance simulator. FTFN-based topology used in this realization enables the simulation of ideal floating and grounded inductance. This modification provides an alternative solution to the integration problem of not only mixed-mode chaotic circuit but also other chaotic circuits in the literature using CMOS VLSI technologies. In addition to this major improvement, CFOA-based nonlinear resistor was used in the new realization of mixed-mode chaotic circuit. The usage of CFOA-based nonlinear resistor in the circuit's structure reduces the component count and provides buffered and isolated output.
