A higher-order oscillator, including a nonlinear unit and an 8th-order low-pass active Bessel filter is described. The Bessel unit plays the role of "three-in-one": a delay line, an amplifier and a filter. Results of hardware experiments and numerical simulation are presented. Depending on the parameters of the nonlinear unit the oscillator operates either in a one-scroll or two-scroll mode. Two positive Lyapunov exponents, found at larger values of the negative slopes of the nonlinear function, characterize the oscillations as hyperchaotic.
