Quasi-Elliptic Wideband Bandpass Filters Using Stubs Loaded Anti-Parallel Coupled-Line

Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 42, 13-28, 2013
Abstract
This paper presents a new type of wideband bandpass filter (BPF) with quasi-elliptic frequency response by using proposed stubs loaded anti-parallel coupled-line. With different loads, the proposed stubs loaded anti-parallel coupled-line has different numbers of transmission zeros (TZs). These TZs are symmetrical along the designing frequency f0. By using a quarter-wavelength parallel coupled-line to connect two proposed stubs loaded anti-parallel coupled-line, three wideband BPFs centered at f0 = 1.575 GHz with quasi-elliptic frequency response are successfully designed. Good agreements between the simulations and measurements can be observed. The measured results also exhibits that the fabricated BPFs have the merits of low in-band insertion loss, good in-band return loss, sharp passband selectivity and high out-of-band rejection.
