The Round-Ended Design and Measurement of All Symmetric Edge-Coupled Bandpass Filter

Abstract
The round-corner design of an all symmetric edge-coupled bandpass filter (BPF) is presented. The manufacturing tolerances and its effects of frequency shift on the design of the edge-coupled are investigated. Consequently, the round-ended design method is proposed in order to compensate the open-end effect in the half-wavelength resonator section with the round-ended corners rather than decrementing the lengths in a conventional way, and an experience formula and a corresponding procedure are devised for the design of such filters. The widths of all the half-wavelength resonators are set equal to avoid discontinuities in the interior of the filter. The filter is realized on a ceramic filled soft substrate with dielectric constant of 6.2. For obtaining the de-embedded measured results at the device plane an in-house customized through-reflect-line (TRL) calibration kit is produced. Three kinds of filters at different center frequencies are manufactured, and their measured results are in good agreement with the simulated ones after calibration.
