A compact ultra-wideband (UWB) bandpass filter (BPF) based on surface-to-surface transition technology with features of extended stopband and integrated interference mitigation characteristics is proposed. The basic structure consists of a modified multiple-mode resonator (MMR)-based co-planar waveguide in the ground surface and coupled in broadside manner with the microstrip lines on the top surface. Later, two open-circuited stubs are embedded in the feeding lines and two complementary split ring resonators are etched in the MMR to implement multiple in-band transmission zeros so as to circumvent interference. A prototype is fabricated and measured to validate the results obtained in simulation. The proposed UWB-BPF is compact in size with overall dimensions of 17.82 by 11.08 mm2.
