Abstract

A dual-band bandpass filter with wide and highly attenuated stopbands is designed using parallel coupled microstrip line (PCML) and stepped-impedance-resonators (SIRs). The proposed filter is composed of a pair of highly coupled PCML-SIR structure and a central resonator using a low impedance rectangular microstrip. Initially, the wide dual-band performance is achieved by creating a transmission zero between those two bands using a tightly coupled PCML-SIR with a suitable impedance ratio. Then, a low impedance resonator is placed between the pair of PCML-SIR to generate multiple resonant frequencies for a broadband performance. The simulated and measured results of those filters agree very well. The bandwidth of the first band in the developed filters extends from 1.75 GHz to 3.75 GHz with less than 0.3 dB insertion loss at the center of the band. The second band has a bandwidth that extends from 6.95 GHz to 8.75 GHz with less than 0.5 dB insertion loss at the center of that band. The stopband separating those two passband has more than 30 dB attenuation with transmission zero at 5.85 GHz.
