Clipper are the circuits that clipps off or limits some portion of input voltage applied. Clippers that clipp off the positive part of the input waveform are known as Positive clipper while the clippers that clipp off the negative part of the input waveform are known as Negative clippers. Clampers are the circuits that shifts the DC level of an AC voltage. Clampers are sometimes known as DC restorers. Like clippers, clampers are also of two types :-(1) Positive clamper (2) Negative clamper. Positive clamper shifts the DC level of an AC signal upward while Negative clamper shifts the DC level downward. The net effect of the clamping action is that the capacitor retains a charge approximately equal to the peak value of the input.
