We show how the hysteresis behavior in electronic circuits can be explained in a robust manner using PSpice transient simulations. Furthermore, we design a novel circuit for three-segment nonlinear characteristic shaping and show how this circuit can be used to produce hysteresis loops. The realization of relaxation oscillators is then given as a typical application.
