A simple current-reversible chaotic jerk circuit is proposed and particularly demonstrates the use of inherently tanh(x) nonlinearity of a single opamp for a chaotic jerk circuit. No additionally nonlinear devices are required. Bifurcation is electronically tunable through a current source in a reversible direction. The largest Lyapunov exponent of either direction forms mirror images, whereas the chaotic attractor of either direction forms anti-symmetric images.
