1a. CLIPPING AND CLAMPING CIRCUITS


AIM: To study the working of positive clipper, double ended clipper and positive clamper
using diodes.
COMPONENTS REQUIRED: Diode (IN914 / IN4007), Resistors-1 K & 100k, DC
regulated power supply (for Vref), Signal generator (for Vi) and CRO.
CIRCUIT DIAGRAM OF POSITIVE CLIPPER

Fig.1 a Positive clipper Circuit b. Transfer Characteristics

Clippers clip off a portion of the input signal without distorting the remaining part of
the waveform. In the positive clipper shown above the input waveform above Vref is clipped
off. If Vref = 0V, the entire positive half of the input waveform is clipped off.
Plot of input Vi (along X-axis) versus output Vo (along Y-axis) called transfer
characteristics of the circuit can also be used to study the working of the clippers.
For stiff clipper: 100RB < RS< 0.01RL, Where RB is bulk resistance of the diode. For
diode IN914, value of RB is 30.Series resistor RS must be 100times greater than bulk
resistance RB and 100 times smaller than load resistance RL.
If RB=30, select RS=1k and RL=100k.
PROCEDURE:
1. Before making the connections check all components using multimeter.
2. Make the connections as shown in circuit diagram.
3. Using a signal generator (Vi) apply a sine wave of 1KHz frequency and a peak-to-
peak amplitude of 10V to the circuit. (Square wave can also be applied.)
4. Keep the CRO in dual mode, connect the input (Vi) signal to channel 1 and output
waveform (Vo) to channel 2. Observe the clipped output waveform which is as shown
in fig. 2. Also record the amplitude and time data from the waveforms.
5. Now keep the CRO in X-Y mode and observe the transfer characteristic waveform.

Note: The above clipper circuits are realized using the diodes in parallel with the load (at the
output), hence they are called shunt clippers. The positive (and negative) clippers can also be
realized in the series configuration wherein the diode is in series with the load. These circuits
are called series clippers.
POSITIVE CLAMPER
COMPONENTS REQUIRED: Diode (IN 914/BY-127), Resistor of 100 K, Capacitor - 1

The clamping network is one that will “clamp” a signal to a different DC level. The
network must have a capacitor, a diode and a resistive element, but it can also employ an
independent DC supply (Vref) to introduce an additional shift. The magnitude of R and C
must be chosen such that time constant τ = RLC is large enough to ensure the voltage across
capacitor does not discharge significantly during the interval of the diode is non-conducting.

DESIGN:
For proper clamping, τ >100T where T is the time period of input waveform
If frequency is 1 kHz with peak-peak input voltage of 10V, T=1ms

10V (and frequency greater than 50Hz) to the circuit. (Sine wave can also be applied)
4. Observe the clamped output waveform on CRO which is as shown in Fig. 6.

2a. CE AMPLIFIER
AIM: To determine the frequency response, input impedance, output impedance and
bandwidth of a CE amplifier.
COMPONENTS REQUIRED: Transistor SL-100, Resistors -33 K, 6.8 K, 470,
2.2k, 10k Capacitors - 47 F, 10 F, DC regulated power supply, Signal generator, CRO
PROCEDURE:
1. Before making the connections check all components using multimeter.
2. Make the connections as shown in circuit diagram.
3. Using a signal generator apply a sinusoidal input waveform of peak-to-peak
amplitude 5mV (Vin) to the circuit and observe the output signal on the CRO.
4. Vary the frequency of input from 50Hz to 1MHz range and note down corresponding
output voltage VO in the tabular column.
Note: When the input frequency is being changed the input amplitude (i.e., around 20
mV) should remain constant.
Adjust the amplitude of Vin (in mV) such that the output Vo does not get clipped (i.e.,
saturated) when the frequency is in the mid range say 1kHz.
5. After the frequency has been changed from 50 Hz to 1MHz and the readings are
tabulated in a tabular column, calculate gain of the amplifier (in dB) using the
formula,
Gain in dB = 20 log 10 (Vo/Vin)
6. Plot the graph of gain versus frequency on a semi log sheet and hence determine the
bandwidth as shown in Fig. 3. Bandwidth = B = f2-f1
To find input impedance, set the input DRBI to a minimum value and DRBO to a
maximum value (say, 10k) as shown in figure 2. Now apply an input signal using signal
generator, say a sine wave whose peak-to-peak amplitude is 5mV with a frequency of 10
KHz. Observe the output on CRO. Note this value of output with DRBI = 0 as V0max.
Now increase the input DRBI value till the output voltage V0 = (1/2) V0max. The
corresponding DRBI value gives input impedance.
To find output impedance, set DRBO which is connected across the output to a
maximum value as shown in figure 2, with the corresponding DRBI at the minimum
position. Apply the input signal using signal generator, say a sine wave whose peak-to-
peak amplitude is 50mV with a frequency of 10 KHz. Observe the output on CRO. Note
this value of output with DRBI = 0 as V0max. Now decrease the DRBO value till the

Bangalore Institute of Technology, Bangalore 5


Dept. of CSE Electronic Circuits Lab Manual

output voltage V0 = (1/2) V0max. The corresponding DRBO value gives output
impedance.
Note: DRBI is connected between the signal generator and the input coupling capacitor.
DRBO is connected across the output (across the CRO terminals).
The ground symbol in the circuit diagram implies a common point. In some of the power
supplies, there will be three terminals - + (plus), - (minus) and GND (ground). Never
connect this GND terminal to the circuit.

RESULT:
1. BANDWIDTH = Hz
2. INPUT IMPEDANCE = Ω
3. OUTPUT IMPEDANCE = Ω

Note: Maximum gain occurs in mid frequency region. This is also called mid band gain.
Gain-bandwidth product = Midband gain x Bandwidth
THEORY:
The frequency response of an amplifier is the graph of its gain versus the frequency.
Fig. 3 shows the frequency response of an ac amplifier. In the middle range of frequencies,
the voltage gain is maximum. The amplifier is normally operated in this range of frequencies.
At low frequencies, the voltage gain decreases because the coupling (CC in Fig.1) and bypass
(CE) capacitors no longer act like short circuits; instead some of the ac signal voltage is
attenuated. The result is a decrease of voltage gain as we approach zero hertz. At high
frequencies, voltage gain decreases because the internal (parasitic) capacitances across the
transistor junctions provide bypass paths for ac signal. So as frequency increases, the
capacitive reactance becomes low enough to prevent normal transistor action. The result is a
loss of voltage gain.
Cutoff frequencies (f1 & f2 in Fig. 3) are the frequencies at which the voltage gain
equals 0.707 of its maximum value. It is also referred to as the half power frequencies
because the load power is half of its maximum value at these frequencies.

THEORY:
Schmitt Trigger converts an irregular shaped waveform to a square wave or pulse.
Here, the input voltage triggers the output voltage every time it exceeds certain voltage levels
called the upper threshold voltage VUTP and lower threshold voltage VLTP. The input voltage
is applied to the inverting input. Because the feedback voltage is aiding the input voltage, the
feedback is positive. A comparator using positive feedback is usually called a Schmitt
Trigger. Schmitt Trigger is used as a squaring circuit, in digital circuitry, amplitude
comparator, etc.

THEORY:
Op-Amp Relaxation Oscillator is a simple Square wave generator which is also called as a
Free running oscillator or Astable multivibrator or Relaxation oscillator. In this figure the
op-amp operates in the saturation region. Here, a fraction (R1/ (R1+R2)) of output is fed back
to the noninverting input terminal. Thus reference voltage is (R1/ (R1+R2)) Vo. And may
take values as + (R1/ (R1+R2)) Vsat or - (R1/ (R1+R2)) Vsat. The output is also fed back to
the inverting input terminal after integrating by means of a low-pass RC combination. Thus
whenever the voltage at inverting input terminal just exceeds reference voltage, switching
takes place resulting in a square wave output.

6. ASTABLE MULTIVIBRATOR USING 555 TIMERS


AIM: To design and implement an astable multivibrator using 555 Timer for a given
frequency and duty cycle.
COMPONENTS REQUIRED: 555 Timer IC, Resistors of 3.3KΩ, 6.8KΩ, Capacitors of
0.1 μF, 0.01 μF, Regulated power supply, CRO
DESIGN: Given frequency (f) = 1 KHz and duty cycle = 60% (=0.6)
The time period T =1/f = 1ms = tH + tL
Where tH is the time the output is high and tL is the time the output is low.
From the theory of astable multivibrator using 555 Timer (refer Malvino), we have
tH = 0.693 RB C ------(1)
tL = 0.693 (RA + RB)C ------(2)
T = tH + tL = 0.693 (RA +2 RB) C
Duty cycle = tH / T = 0.6. Hence tH = 0.6T = 0.6ms and tL = T – tH = 0.4ms.
Let C=0.1μF and substituting in the above equations,
RB = 5.8KΩ (from equation 1) and RA = 2.9KΩ (from equation 2 & RB values).
The Vcc determines the upper and lower threshold voltages (observed from the capacitor
2 1
voltage waveform) as VUT  VCC & VLT  VCC .

Note: The duty cycle determined by RA & RB can vary only between 50 & 100%. If RA is
much smaller than RB, the duty cycle approaches 50%.
Design 2: frequency = 1 kHz and duty cycle =75%, RA = 7.2kΩ & RB =3.6kΩ, choose RA =
6.8kΩ and RB = 3.3kΩ.

THEORY:
Multivibrator is a form of oscillator, which has a non-sinusoidal output. The output
waveform is rectangular. The multivibrators are classified as: Astable or free running
multivibrator: It alternates automatically between two states (low and high for a rectangular
output) and remains in each state for a time dependent upon the circuit constants. It is just an
oscillator as it requires no external pulse for its operation. Monostable or one shot
multivibrator: It has one stable state and one quasi stable. The application of an input pulse
triggers the circuit time constants. After a period of time determined by the time constant, the
circuit returns to its initial stable state. The process is repeated upon the application of each
trigger pulse. Bistable Multivibrators: It has both stable states. It requires the application of
an external triggering pulse to change the output from one state to other. After the output has
changed its state, it remains in that state until the application of next trigger pulse. Flip flop is
an example.
