|摘要:||Planar microstrip filters are designed to have a quasielliptic function passband and extended upper stopband with a rejection level of 40 or 50 dB. The design employs stepped-impedance resonators in a compact 2 x 2 cross coupled configuration. The geometric parameters of the resonators are planned to shift the third resonance as high as possible, and then the transmission zeros created by the structure are devised to suppress the second resonance, so that a wide upper stopband up to more than 4.5 times the passband frequency can be achieved. By employing the skew-symmetric input/output feeds, three transmission zeros in the frequency band of interest can be created. The leading two zeros are allocated on the both sides of the passband, generating a quasi-elliptic function response with enhanced roll-off rate in the transition bands, and the last zero incorporating with a zero created by anti-coupled-line at higher frequencies are employed to extend the rejection bandwidth. The measurement data agree very well with the simulation responses.|
