Since the introduction of the gyrator in 1948, numerous papers have been written concerning the implementation and application of these network devices. Gyrators have been realized utilizing vacuum tubes, transistors, and operational amplifiers to obtain their non- reciprocal property. It is the purpose of this thesis to consolidate the current findings. A section has been written on each of the active devices mentioned above. The individual sections consist of summaries of published gyrator realizations. The method used to obtain the gyrator properties, along with appropriate equations, is that of the original circuit designer. Some relations and equations have been modified to standardize notation, or to express them in a more convenient form. Where available, experimental test circuits have been included to support the synthesis method.
