There are many phenomena in nature in which organisms have some type of synchronization, for example heart cells all beating in unison. The purpose of this research is to model some of these phenomena using electronics. First, I started by learning how to make printed circuit boards (PCB) on a Voltera VOne machine and using the software EAGLE so that I could create an electronic model for experimentation. Then I connected operational amplifier-based oscillators in a universal coupling pattern to observe their behavior when they all could send and receive information. Experiments consisted of modifying the oscillators’ natural frequencies to find regions of different types of synchronization patterns, ranging from one-to-one up to three-to-seven locking. The results have the potential to explain how different synchronization patterns can emerge in nature when systems communicate.
