This paper describes a new programmable and scalable experimental setup for studying dynamics and synchronization in complex networks of chaotic Chua’s circuits. It provides direct control on the coupling topology, links and node’s parameters. As demonstration of the experimental capability of the setup, the synchronization properties are investigated of networks of Chua’s with different topologies. The experimental results are compared with the theoretical thresholds, obtained by applying the Master Stability Function approach.
