4.49 In the attenuator circuit of Fig. P4.48, let R s The diode is a 1-mA device; that is, it exhibits a voltage drop of 0.7 V at a dc current of 1 mA. For small input signals, what value of current I is needed for v o /v s = 0.50? 0.10? 0.01? 0.001? In each case, what is the largest input signal that can be used while ensuring that the signal component of the diode current is limited to ±10% of its dc current? What output signals correspond?
