EE 310 Exam I Spring 2008 2/19/2008 3 Problem 6 [3 pts.] In the following circuit the diode is modeled as having a constant voltage drop V γ = 0.7 V when conducting (i.e., ON), and as an open circuit when OFF. Determine the minimum and maximum values of output voltage ( v O MIN and v O MAX ), if the input voltage, v I , is a 10-V peak-to-peak square wave. v O MIN , v O MAX values: A 0.7 V, +5 V D 2.5 V, +0.7 V B 0.7 V, +2.5 V E 5 V, +0.7 V C 0.7 V, +0.7 V Problem 7 [3 pts.] The unregulated voltage source in the above circuit ranges from 18 V to 24 V. The limiting resistor is chosen to be R i = 1 kΩ. Choose the smallest power rating for the Zener diode that will allow it to survive
