A Novel Synthesis Technique for Microwave Bandpass Filters with Frequency-Dependent Couplings
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research, Vol. 137, 35-50, 2013
Abstract
This paper presents a novel synthesis technique for microwave bandpass filters with frequency-dependent couplings. The proposed method is based on the systematic extraction of a dispersive coupling coefficient using an optimization technique based on the zeros and poles of scattering parameters representing two coupled resonators. The application of this method of synthesis is illustrated using two examples involving four and five-pole generalized Chebyshev filters implemented in substrate-integrated waveguide (SIW) technology. As a dispersive inverter, a parallel shorted stub with an additional septum was used. The septum lends greater flexibility to the dimensional synthesis, in that it increases the allowable range of the coupling coefficients. The measured and simulated results are in excellent agreement, which confirms the validity of the proposed approach.
