Compact Microstrip Lowpass Filter with Ultra-Wide Stopband Using Patch Resonators and Open Stubs
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 72, 15-28, 2017
Abstract
A compact microstrip lowpass filter with ultra-wide stopband characteristics and high suppression level is presented. To achieve compact size and wide stopband suppression along with improved impedance matching, symmetrically loaded resonant patches, open stubs and stair shaped high impedance stub is introduced in the filter. The measurement results show good agreement with the simulations. The 3 dB cutoff frequency of the filter is 2.44 GHz. The stopband with attenuation level better than 22 dB is extended from 2.84 GHz to 16 GHz, hence an ultra wide stopband with 6th harmonic suppression is achieved. The proposed filter has low insertion loss and high return loss in the passband, together with compact size of 0.257λgx0.148λg, where λg is the guided wavelength at cutoff frequency. The relative stop bandwidth of the proposed design is identified to be 139.5%.
