Abstract
In this paper, a compact wideband high-rejection microstrip bandstop filter using two meandered parallel-coupled lines of different electrical lengths and characteristic impedances in shunt is presented. The transmission and reflection zeros of the filter can be controlled through analytical equations and rulers given. Using this signal interferences technology, this filter obtains a low insertion loss and sharp rejection. Bandwidth and rejection level of the filters of this bandstop filter can be designed by choosing different even- and odd-mode characteristic impedances values of the coupled lines. According to the transmission zeros number, two types of filters are shown in the paper. To validated this topology, a wideband bandstop filter with a 3 dB cutoff frequency bandwidth of 92% centered at 2.6 GHz with sharp rejection characteristics is built to verify the theoretical prediction. The measured frequency response of the filter agrees excellently with the predicted result.
