Abstract:
This paper presents a high-selectivity dual-mode dual-band bandpass filter with good cutoff signal rejection. The high-selectivity dual-mode dual-band bandpass filter is designed by an asymmetrical transmission zero (TZ). The asymmetrical transmission zeros next to the upper sideband of the first resonant filter and the TZ at the lower sideband of the second passband filter are combined to form a dual-mode dual-band filter. The locations of the TZ are designed at the side passbands of the filters in order to filter out unwanted signals, obtain good cutoff rate in the stopband, and give much improved signal selectivity for the dual-band bandpass filter. One dual-mode filter is designed at the center frequency of 1.8 GHz and the other's desired performance at 2.4 GHz. The two filters can be combined using the coupled feed lines in which these coupled feed lines present a simple structure of dual-mode dual-band bandpass filter. The insertion loss of the dual-mode dual-band bandpass filter is less than 1.2 dB, and the rejection between two transmission bands is about 18 dB from 1.9 to 2.35 GHz. This high-performance dual-mode dual-band bandpass filter can be used in many wireless communication systems.
