This paper provides readers with three partial results that are mutually connected. Firstly, the gallery of the so-called constant phase elements (CPE) dedicated for the wideband applications is presented. CPEs are calculated for 9° (decimal orders) and 10° phase steps including ¼, ½, and ¾ orders, which are the most used mathematical orders between zero and one in practice. For each phase shift, all necessary numerical values to design fully passive RC ladder two-terminal circuits are provided. Individual CPEs are easily distinguishable because of a very high accuracy; maximal phase error is less than 1.5° in wide frequency range beginning with 3 Hz and ending with 1 MHz. Secondly, dynamics of ternary memory composed by a series connection of two resonant tunneling diodes is investigated and, consequently, a robust chaotic behavior is discovered and reported. Finally, CPEs are directly used for realization of fractional-order (FO) ternary memory as lumped chaotic oscillator. Existence of structurally stable strange attractors for different orders is proved, both by numerical analyzed and experimental measurement.
