Answer :

  • Clipper circuit limits the voltage level.
  • Clipper circuit simply consists of diode or transistor and resistor.
  • Clipper circuit is also known as limiter or slicer.
  • From the position of diode clipper is classified as series clipper and shunt clipper.
  • Series clipper have diode connected in series with load resistance.
  • Shunt clipper have diode connected in shunt with load resistance.
