The design and simulation of a complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) exactly solvable chaotic oscillator is presented in this work. The goal of this work is to design and simulate a high-frequency implementation of a piece-wise linear exactly solvable chaotic oscillator. The oscillator is designed using 45nm CMOS technology and models the system accurately to around 50MHz. The CMOS model's performance is also evaluated at higher frequencies. SPICE simulation is used for circuit verification and the results are compared with numerical solutions of the model. In this work, an approach for design and fabrication of an integrated circuit is also discussed to lay the groundwork for future integrated circuit development of exactly solvable systems. This integrated circuit was designed and simulated within the Cadence Virtuoso Analog Design Environment. Fabrication was done through MOSIS.
