A Novel Bandpass Filter with Controllable Transmission Zeros

Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 58, 141-147, 2016
Abstract
A planar bandpass filter is proposed in this paper. Its stopband is realized by using the concept of bandstop filter. A key merit of the filter configuration is that the position of the transmission zeros can be conveniently controlled whereas the bandwidth is fixed. The bandpass filter is realized using open circuited uniform impedance resonator and stepped impedance resonators. With five reflection zeros generated in the passband, ten controllable transmission zeros are introduced to sharpen the passband skirts. Skirt selectivity can be freely controlled by tuning the impedance ratio of the stepped impedance resonators. Without coupling gaps between resonators, the structure of the filter is simple and easy to fabricate. To illustrate the concept, a bandpass filter with ten transmission zeros is designed, fabricated and measured. Simulated and measured results are found to be in good agreement with each other, with insertion loss in the passbands less than 1 dB.
