This paper presents a novel quintuple-mode wideband lter based on a circular Substrate Integrated Waveguide (SIW) cavity. To implement this filter, a pair of two metallic perturbation vias loaded around the diameter resonator line is used. An Elliptic Dielectric Resonator (EDR) was introduced in the middle of the cavity to shift certain resonant modes and restrain the higher-order modes. The optimal dimensions and dielectric permittivity of the EDR are investigated. A single SIW resonator filter has been designed, manufactured, and measured as an experimental example to verify the proposed design. Simulation and measurement results agree with 51.7% of fractional bandwidth at 10.1 GHz central frequency, with one transmission zero (TZ) at the lower frequency side and four TZs at the upper side.
