Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 103, 73-79, 2022
Abstract
In this paper, a novel tunable LC bandpass filter (BPF) based on LC magnetic-dominant mixed coupling is proposed. The design equations for the coupling coefficient and resonating frequency are given. The magnetic dominant coupling region and electric dominant coupling region are studied. The magnetic-dominant mixed coupling is used to compensate the bandwidth of the tunable filter, so that the tunable filter with constant absolute bandwidth can be obtained. The filter is designed, simulated and measured, and the measurement matches the simulation very well. The measurement shows that the central frequency tuning range is from 72 MHz to 222 MHz with -3dB bandwidth of 16.5±3.5 MHz.
