1. Using a 5v sin voltage supply as input, a resistor and necessary number of diodes, design the diode limiter circuits for the following specifications:
a) limit the output voltage within the range [0, V1], where V1 is a number of your choice from the set [3.0, 3.5, 4.0]
b) limit the output voltage within the range [-V1, V1].
2. Simulate the designed circuits and correct the design if necessary (might need several steps).
3. Analyze the results, compare theoretical with the experimental, draw conclusions.
4. Hint. The Von of the actual diodes you will use may depend on the selected Q-point. Thus the value of the resistor should be selected appropriately to provide for the desired value of the current. You may need to find it by experimenting with the circuit.

This is what I need to design, but I have no idea how to make the simulation circuit! The circuit I built, doesn't limit my output voltage to V1, what do I do?
