In this paper, we develop a parameter matching technique using adaptive synchronization with a chaotic attractor. Two Chua's oscillators, identical in every parameter except for one, are set-up in a master/slave configuration where the slave's mismatched parameter is adaptable. Using Lyapunov functions and incorporating the presence of chaotic signals, adaptive control laws are designed to ensure exact parameter matching. One of the derived adaptive controllers is experimentally validated by using an adaptive inductor-gyrator composed of current feedback op-amps (CFOAs). The experimental results are compared to high-fidelity SPICE simulations, and performance of adaptive controllers are compared over a wide range of parameter values using MATLAB.
