We introduce a general class of iterative delay maps to model high-dimensional chaos in dynamical systems with delayed feedback. The class includes as particular cases systems with a linear local dynamics. We report analytic and numerical results on the scaling laws of Lyapunov spectra with a number of degrees of freedom. Invariant measure is computed through a self-consistent Frobenius-Perron formalism, which allows also a recalculation of the maximum Lyapunov exponent in good agreement with the one measured directly.
