This report presents experimental measurements of mixed-mode oscillations (MMOs) generated by a weakly driven four-segment piecewise linear Bonhoeffer-van der Pol (BVP) oscillator. Such a roughly approximated simple piecewise linear circuit can generate MMOs and mixed-mode oscillation-incrementing bifurcations (MMOIBs). The laboratory experiments well agree with numerical results. We experimentally and numerically observe time series and Lorenz plots of MMOs generated by successive and nonsuccessive MMOIBs.
