Abstract

In this paper, a new multi-layered triple-passband bandpass filter using embedded and stub-loaded stepped impedance resonators (SIRs) is proposed. The filter is designed to have triple-passband at 1.8, 2.4, and 3.5 GHz. The 1st and 2nd passbands (1.8/2.4 GHz) are simultaneously generated by controlling the impedance and length ratios of the embedded SIRs (on top layer). The 3rd passband (3.5 GHz) is generated by using the stub-loaded SIR (on bottom layer). Using the embedded SIR, the even modes can be tuned within very wide frequency range and without affecting the odd modes. Therefore, the design of multi-band filters with very close passbands can be easily achieved and having a high isolation between the passbands. The filter can provide the multi-path propagation to enhance the frequency response and achieving the compact circuit size. The measured results are in good agreement with the full-wave electromagnetic simulation results.
