In this paper, a new approach to secure in perturbed receiver based on the Chen fractional order delayed chaotic system is developed and the electronics circuit is simulated with Multisim. The main idea of this approach is the injection of the transmitted message in the dynamics of the Chen fractional order delayed chaotic system in the transmitter. To recover the message from the perturbed receiver, we use the H-infinity to establish the synchronization between the transmitter and the receiver and to recover the transmitted signal. Little paper in the literature presents the electronic circuit of the secure communication using fractional order delayed chaotic system due to the difficulty of realization, for it, the electronic circuit is detailed using Multisim software to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed approach.
