In view of the fact that most of the electronic devices work on a single positive supply, the input voltage range would also be on the positive side.

Since the natural signals like audio signals, sinusoidal waveforms and many others contain both positive and negative cycles with varying amplitude in their duration. These waveforms and other signals have to be modified in such a way that the single supply electronic circuits can be able to operate on them. The clipping of a waveform is the most common technique that applies to the input signals to adapt them so that they may lie within the operating range of the electronic circuits.

The clipping of waveforms can be done by eliminating the portions of the waveform which crosses the input range of the circuit.

Clippers can be broadly classified into two basic types of circuits. They are: series clippers and shunt or parallel clippers. Series clipper circuit contains a power diode in series with the load connected at the end of the circuit. The shunt clipper contains a diode in parallel with the resistive load. The half — wave rectifier circuit is similar to a series clipper circuit. If the diode in series clipper circuit is in forward bias condition, the output waveform at the load follows the input waveform.

When the diode is in reverse bias and it is unable to conduct current, the output of the circuit is nearly zero volts. The direction of the connected diode determines the polarity of the clipped output waveform.

If the diode symbol points toward the source and is connected to the positive terminal of the supply, the circuit will be a positive series clipper, resembles that it clips off the positive alternation or cycle of the input sinusoidal waveform. If the diode symbol points toward the connected load, then the circuit will be a negative series clipper, resembles that it clips off the negative alternation or cycle of the input sinusoidal waveform.

In contrast to the series clipper circuit, a shunt clipper circuit provides the output when the diode is connected in reverse bias and when it is not conducting. When the diode is non — conducting, the shunt combination diode acts as an open circuit and both the series resistor and load resistor acts as a voltage divider. The series limiting resistor is connected in series with the supply to prevent the diode from short circuits.

It depends on the polarity of the shunt clipper which is determined by the direction of diode connection. Above biased clipper circuit is a shunt clipper circuit which uses the DC supply voltage to bias the diode. It is the biasing voltage at which the diode starts conducting.

The diode in the shunt clipper circuit starts to conduct when it reaches the biasing voltage. Clipper circuits are used in a variety of systems to perform one of the two functions: Altering the waveform shapes Protecting the circuits from transients The first application is commonly noticed in the operation of half-wave rectifiers that changes the varying voltage into an output pulsative DC waveform.

A transient is defined as an abrupt change in current or voltage with extremely short duration.

Clipper circuits can be used to protect the sensitive circuits from transient effects. Types of Clipper Circuits Cathode is connected to the power supply and anode is maintained at ground potential.

Series Negative Clipper Anode is connected to the power supply and the cathode is maintained at ground potential. Shunt Positive Clipper Anode is connected to the the power supply through a resistor R and the cathode is at ground potential. Shunt Negative Clipper Cathode is connected to the power supply through a resistor R and anode is maintained at ground potential. Shunt Positive Clipper with Positive Vr Shunt Positive Clipper with Positive Vr During the positive half cycle the diode conducts causing the positive reference voltage appear as output voltage; and, during the negative half cycle, the entire input is generated as the output as the diode is in reverse biased.

In addition to the positive and negative clippers, there is a combined clipper which is used for clipping both the positive and negative half cycles as discussed below.

Types of Clippers and Clampers with Applications

During the positive half cycle, the diode the diode D1 conducts causing the reference voltage connected in series with D1 to appear across the output. During the negative cycle, the diode D2 conducts causing the negative reference voltage connected across the D2 appear as output, as shown in the above figure. Working of Clamper Circuit The positive or negative peak of a signal can be positioned at the desired level by using the clamping circuits. As we can shift the levels of peaks of the signal by using a clamper, hence, it is also called as level shifter.

The clamper circuit consists of a capacitor and diode connected in parallel across the load. The clamper circuit depends on the change in the time constant of the capacitor. The capacitor must be chosen such that, during the conduction of the diode, the capacitor must be sufficient to charge quickly and during the nonconducting period of diode, the capacitor should not discharge drastically. The clampers are classified as positive and negative clampers based on the clamping method. Negative Clamper Negative Clamper During the positive half cycle, the input diode is in forward bias- and as the diode conducts-capacitor gets charged up to peak value of input supply.

During the negative half cycle, reverse does not conduct and the output voltage become equal to the sum of the input voltage and the voltage stored across the capacitor. Negative Clamper with Positive Vr Negative Clamper with Positive Vr It is similar to the negative clamper, but the output waveform is shifted towards the positive direction by a positive reference voltage. As the positive reference voltage is connected in series with the diode, during the positive half cycle, even though the diode conducts, the output voltage becomes equal to the reference voltage; hence, the output is clamped towards the positive direction as shown in the above figure.

Negative Clamper with Negative Vr Negative Clamper with Negative Vr By inverting the reference voltage directions, the negative reference voltage is connected in series with the diode as shown in the above figure.

During the positive half cycle, the diode starts conduction before zero, as the cathode has a negative reference voltage, which is less than that of zero and the anode voltage, and thus, the waveform is clamped towards the negative direction by the reference voltage value.

Positive Clamper Positive Clamper It is almost similar to the negative clamper circuit, but the diode is connected in the opposite direction. During the positive half cycle, the voltage across the output terminals becomes equal to the sum of the input voltage and capacitor voltage considering the capacitor as initially fully charged.

During the negative half cycle of the input, the diode starts conducting and charges the capacitor rapidly to its peak input value. Thus the waveforms are clamped towards the positive direction as shown above.

Positive Clamper with Positive Vr Positive Clamper with Positive Vr A positive reference voltage is added in series with the diode of the positive clamper as shown in the circuit. During the positive half cycle of the input, the diode conducts as initially the supply voltage is less than the anode positive reference voltage. If once the cathode voltage is greater than anode voltage then the diode stops conduction.

During the negative half cycle, the diode conducts and charges the capacitor. Search inside document. Electronics I lab EE Objectives: Page No Documents Similar To Clippers and Clampers.

Susan Beeley.If the diode symbol points toward the connected load, then the circuit will be a negative series clipper, resembles that it clips off the negative alternation or cycle of the input sinusoidal waveform.

Similarly, a clamper circuit adds the negative dc component to the input signal to push it to the negative side. The above figure shows a series negative clipper with its output waveforms. As these circuits are used only for clipping input waveform as per the requirement and for transmitting the waveform, they do not contain any energy storing element like a capacitor.

Commonly used in power supplies. During the positive half cycle, the input is generated as output, and during the negative half cycle, a positive reference voltage will be the output voltage as shown above.

Positive Clamper During the negative half cycle of the input voltage Vin the diode is forward biased and the current flows through the circuit. By varying the setting of , the dc reference voltage for the circuit can be varied between approximately 0 V and the value of the dc supply voltage. During the positive half cycle, the entire input appears as output, and during the negative half cycle, a reference voltage appears as output as shown in the above figure.
