In this chapter we present the behavior study of a chaotic circuit which is composed by an externally triggered single transistor. This investigation has been done with the three circuit-cases implementations that follow. First, we investigate the correlation of the chaotic time series between the transistor’s emitter and collector, by applying the nearest neighbor algorithm, for the prediction of the emitter’s voltage time series by reconstructing its attractor. This procedure is based on estimating the number of the collector’s nearest neighbor voltage time series for specific time interval. Next, we study an externally triggered experimental chaotic circuit, with a bipolar junction transistor operating in its reverse active region. In this case, we apply nonlinear time series modeling techniques to analyze the output voltage oscillations of the circuit and reveal the presence of chaos, which is achieved by controlling the amplitude of the applied input signal. Finally, we study an optoelectronic chaotic circuit which is based on an optocoupler device and can be used as a controlled optoelectronic chaotic signal generator and the chaotic behavior of a single electron transistor circuit.
