The topological resemblance of the Colpitts oscillator to that of Chua's circuit suggests that the two circuits may also be similar in their dynamic behavior. The similarity in the dynamics is demonstrated in the present communication by resorting to computer simulation. We deal in particular with the unknown chaotic behavior of the Colpitts oscillator. It is shown by referring to recently published articles that the Colpitts oscillator and Chua's circuit are in fact topologically conjugate one to another
