Abstract
A lossy filter with resistive coupling is proposed based on substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) resonators, where nonresonating nodes are not required to simplify the realization. The sensitivity analysis of S-parameter to the resistive coupling coefficient is carried out to determine the parameters of coupling structure and mounted resistors. When resistive couplings are added to the structure, the measured 0.2-dB passband bandwidth increases from 198 to 256 MHz, compared with the case without resistive couplings. At a sacrifice on the additional insertion loss of 1.1 dB, the passband flatness and selectivity are improved significantly. The lossy SIW filter can provide a smaller in-band insertion loss than the microstrip counterparts, because the unloaded Q-factor of SIW resonators is higher than that of microstrip resonators. Moreover, a simpler topology and a less insertion loss are obtained in the proposed resistively coupled SIW filter than those of the lossy filter synthesized with lossy coupling matrix. Excellent agreement between the simulated and measured results is achieved to demonstrate our idea.
