Abstract:
This paper presents a piezoelectric transducer-tuned fourth-order bandpass filter (BPF). The proposed filter consists of four open-loop resonators which form cascaded quadruplet (CQ) sections with a capacitive cross coupling. There are two transmission zeros (TZs) in the lower and upper stopband to further improve the selectivity of the filter. The structure parameters are optimized by using High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS). The piezoelectric transducer (PET) together with a dielectric substrate is used as a tuning element. The effects of the PET on the coupling coefficient and external quality factor are analyzed. The designed tunable filter has been manufactured and measured. The measured results show that the center frequency of the filter changes from 2.48 GHz to 2.28 GHz; the insertion loss basically keeps constant; 3 dB bandwidth of the filter changes from 156 MHz to 168 MHz over the tuning range; and the positions of the TZs in the stopband move synchronously as the center frequency varies.
