Parallel Limiter

A resistor and diode, connected in series with the input signal, in which the output is taken across (parallel to) the diode.

Parallel Negative Limiter

A resistor and diode, connected in series with the input signal, in which the output is taken across the diode and the negative alternation is eliminated.

Parallel Positive Limiter

A resistor and diode connected in series with the input signal, in which the output is taken across the diode and the positive alternation is eliminated.
