A compact dual-band microstrip bandpass filter (BPF) is presented for application at the frequencies 2.4 and 5.84 GHz. The proposed main resonator consists of two L-shaped resonators. To improve the upper-stopband of the proposed filter, modified U-Shaped resonators are accepted. The operation mechanism of the filter is investigated based on proffered equivalent-circuit model and transformation function. The sketched dual-band BPF attends the insertion loss less than 0.1 and 0.4 dB Also the return loss is 26 and 28 dB at 2.4 and 5.84, respectively. This proffered filter structure is proper for Bluetooth and wireless local area networks and other wireless communication systems. An overall good agreement between measured and simulated results is observed.
