A Compact UWB Bandpass Filter with Improved Out-of-Band Performance Using Modified Coupling Structure
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 22, 191-197, 2011
Abstract
A compact ultra-wideband (UWB) bandpass filter (BPF) with improved harmonic suppression using a modified coupling structure is presented in this paper. The modified coupling structure is constructed by taper-connecting two folded open stubs to the traditional parallel-coupled lines, which shows an improved characteristic in harmonic suppression. By integrating the proposed coupling and the stepped-impedance stub loaded resonator (SISLR), a UWB BPF is finally built and tested. The simulated and measured results are in good agreement with each other, exhibiting good wideband filtering characteristic and improved out-of-band performance.
