What is the smallest possible load resistor that can be used while the zener operates at a current no lower than the knee current while the supply is 10% low. 3- Consider the half-wave rectifier circuit of Fig. 3. Let v S be a sinusoid with 15 V peak amplitude, and let R=1.5k . Use the constant-voltage-drop diode model with V D =0.7V. Fig. 3 a. Sketch the transfer characteristic (v O in terms of v S ) b. Sketch the waveform of v O c. Find the average value of v O d. Find the peak current in the diode e. Find the PIV of the diode. 4- Design limiter circuits using only diodes and 10-k resistors to provide an output signal limited to the range: a. -0.7V and above b. -2.1V and above c. 1.4 V Assume that each diode has a 0.7 V drop when conducting.
