A novel dual-mode dual-band bandpass filter based on conventional triangular dual-mode filter is designed in this paper. The filter has the characteristics of compact structure, low insertion loss and so on. Based on the current design schemes, the design of dualmode and dual-band filter can be integrated in a novel filter structure. Several attenuation poles in the stopband are realized to improve the selectivity of the proposed bandpass filter. The experimented results were in good agreement with simulated results.
