INTRODUCTION

Double Ended Clipper:

Sometimes it is desired to remove a small portion of both positive and


negative half cycles. In such cases, the dual clippers are used.

The dual clippers are made by combining the biased shunt positive clipper
and biased shunt negative clipper.

Let us consider a dual clipper circuit in which a sinusoidal ac voltage is


applied to the input terminals of the circuit.

During positive half cycle:

During the positive half cycle, the diode D1 is forward biased by the input
supply voltage Viand reverse biased by the battery voltage VB1. On the
other hand, the diode D2 is reverse biased by both input supply voltage
Vi and battery voltage VB2.

Initially, the input supply voltage is less than the battery voltage. So the
diode D1 is reverse biased by the battery voltage VB1. Similarly, the diode
D2 is reverse biased by the battery voltage VB2. As a result, the signal
appears at the output. However, when the input supply voltage V i becomes
greater than the battery voltage VB1, the diode D1 is forward biased by the
input supply voltage. As a result, no signal appears at the output.

During negative half cycle:

During the negative half cycle, the diode D1 is reverse biased by both input
supply voltage Viand battery voltage VB1. On the other hand, the diode D2 is
forward biased by the input supply voltage Vi and reverse biased by the
battery voltage VB2.

Initially, the battery voltage is greater than the input supply voltage.
Therefore, the diode D1and diode D2 are reverse biased by the battery
voltage. As a result, the signal appears at the output.

When the input supply voltage becomes greater than the battery voltage
VB2, the diode D2 is forward biased. As a result, no signal appears at the
output.

APPLICATIONS

Clippers find several applications, such as

 They are frequently used for the separation of synchronizing signals from the
composite picture signals.
 The excessive noise spikes above a certain level can be limited or clipped in FM
transmitters by using the series clippers.
 For the generation of new waveforms or shaping the existing waveform,
clippers are used.
 The typical application of diode clipper is for the protection of transistor from
transients, as a freewheeling diode connected in parallel across the inductive load.
 Frequently used half wave rectifier in power supply kits is a typical example of
a clipper. It clips either positive or negative half wave of the input.
 Clippers can be used as voltage limiters and amplitude selectors.
