Abstract

Compact symmetrical four-ports differential bandpass filters with good common-mode suppressions are proposed in this work. The presented filters are designed based on half-wavelength coupled resonators with compact size, good filtering responses for differential-mode, and wide common-mode suppression range. To further improve the common-mode performances within the differential-mode passband, T-shaped resonators are loaded at the center of the structure. It is noted that, the size of filter does not become larger with loaded T-shaped resonators. Both these two filters are centered at 1.8 GHz for Global System Mobile Communication (GSM) with 7.8% fractional bandwidth. For differential-mode, the insertion is less than -1.2 dB in the 3-dB passband and the matching is better than -20 dB. Good stopband characteristics are also obtained with more than -20 dB out-of-band attenuation from dc to 1.6 GHz in the lower stopband and from 2.0 to 4.8 GHz in the upper stopband. For common-mode, better than -15 dB suppression is achieved within dc to 6.2 GHz and with the help of the loaded T-shaped resonators, the rejection in the differential-mode passband is improved to be more than -40 dB. Theory analysis, simulation, and measurement show good agreement with each other.
