In this paper the super regenerative detector, as proposed by Armstrong in 1922, is investigated. We show that in a simplified model the current in the circuit behaves chaotically during a small period in time after which the circuit becomes an oscillator. Armstrong was not aware of the circuits' chaotic behavior, but reported strange irregular start-ups of the oscillator. Chaotic behavior of the circuit is demonstrated in this paper using computer simulation. During the period in which the… Expand
