In this article, a novel multilayer second-order coupled-resonator bandpass filter with harmonics suppression is proposed to improve the stopband characteristics. The proposed filter has been implemented in a five-layer configuration using multilayer PCB technology. The measured results agree very well with the full-wave EM simulation, showing more than 35 dB harmonics suppression. © 2006 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    A compact structure for a microwave bandpass filter which uses both microstrip lines and lumped elements is proposed. These filters exhibit broad low-spurious stopbands, a highly suppressed second passband, and small size. A 4.3-GHz 23% bandwidth 5-section prototype has been tested and shows...

    In this letter, we propose a novel design of a universal mobile telecommunications system diplexer using a combined coplanar waveguide (CPW) and microstrip structure. The diplexer is composed of two bandpass filters (BPFs), which are termed the transmitting (Tx) and receiving (Rx) filters. The...

    In this Letter, a miniaturised tri-band lowpass-bandpass (LP-BP) filter is proposed by using lumped-element structure. The lowpass passband (LP) and the first bandpass passband (1-BP) are produced by using the transmission zeros to divide a lowpass filtering response into a dual-band LP-BP...

    This paper deals with the improvement of a switchable narrow-bandpass planar filter. A first switchable filter, based on the dual-behavior resonator (DBR) topology, is designed. However, the superposition of the passband and spurious resonance from one state to the other may occur. So, its...
