Abstract:
This paper proposes a new design of coplanar waveguide dual-band bandstop filter (DBBSF) with center frequencies at 1.8 GHz and 2.8 GHz. A lumped element model of four series-connected parallel LC resonators are derived, then implemented using compact CPW resonators patterned in the center conductor. The measured and simulated responses are in good agreement which validates the design.
