Xian-Jie Liao;Min-Hua Ho;Wei-Hong Hsu;Wei-Qin Xu;Li-Jing Lin
PIER Letters , 2009, DOI: 10.2528/PIERL09080601
Abstract: We propose a novel UWB bandpass filter (BPF) design using the suspended stripline (SSL). The filter composes of a lowpass and a high-pass circuit, both implemented by SSL structures. A notch response structure might be implemented to the filter by embedding a resonant slotline. The quasi-lumped elements circuit models were developed to analyze these circuits' performance. Experiments were conducted, and good agreements were observed between the measurements and simulations.

PIER Letters , 2009, DOI: 10.2528/PIERL09031601
Abstract: A quasi-lumped design of a suspended stripline (SSL) bandpass filter (BPF) exhibiting high signal selectivity is proposed. In the circuit, transmission zeros were implanted to enhance the stopband signal rejection. A sample BPF having an operation band of 6.77--7.33\,GHz was fabricated and measured for performance verification of the proposed design.

PIER Letters , 2011, DOI: 10.2528/PIERL11053001
Abstract: Miniature bandpass filter constructions based on a novel dual-mode suspended stripline resonator are proposed. Because of a special structure of the resonator, the frequencies of two first oscillation modes may be brought closer together. That allows realizing narrowband filters with the wide upper stopband. The filters have low insertion loss in the passband at small dimensions. Several transmission zeros substantially improve the filter performance. The derived coupling coefficients account for some features in the frequency response of the filter. The second-order and fourth-order filters with transmission zeros have been fabricated and measured.

PIER C , 2010, DOI: 10.2528/PIERC10070604
Abstract: A new quasi-lumped suspended-substrate stripline structure admitting implementation of miniature highly selective narrowband filters is studied. Appreciable improvement of the device selectivity is achieved with supplementary strip conductors introduced between the resonators, which induce attenuation poles near both passband edges. Furthermore, these supplementary conductors reducing the coupling between the resona-tors allow diminishing the inter-resonator spacing and the total size. A four-resonator filter is synthesized using the intelligence optimization method. Experimental results of the manufactured filter are presented.

PIER B , 2009, DOI: 10.2528/PIERB09021302
Abstract: This paper develops a novel design method for synthesizing the multi-passband filter with high flexibility in various passband location and fractional bandwidth. Using the proposed compensation technology in the equivalent circuit of multi-passband resonator, the cutoff frequencies and matching property in passband regions can be improved. Triple- and quad-band bandpass filters operating in both wireless local area network (WLAN) 802.11 a/b/g and worldwide interoperability for microwave access (WiMAX) systems are presented to verify the design method. The lumped-element coplanar waveguide stub fabricated by the split-ring resonator is established to realize filter with compact size. All the measured, full-wave simulated and equivalent-circuit modeled results illustrate a good agreement among them, which validates the multi-passband design methodology and shows the advantages of DC elimination and deep rejection between each passband.

PIER Letters , 2009, DOI: 10.2528/PIERL09042201
Abstract: A bandpass filter (BPF) using CPW combined with microstrip is proposed. The target BPF is composed of two element filters built from combined CPW and microstrip structure. The design of element filter is based on the lumped elements approach with each circuit component built from a CPW or microstrip. In the circuit model, transmission zeros are created by the passband edges to enhance the signal selectivity. The element filter's characteristics are analyzed by the lumped L-C circuit model. Experiment is conducted, and a good agreement is observed between the measurement and simulation.

PIER , 2013, DOI: 10.2528/PIER12112807
Abstract: This paper introduces a theoretical analysis as well as a design example for bandpass filters (BPF) with a distinctive topology. Based on the analysis of simple two-port symmetrical lossless networks with a parallel structure, a method for obtaining normalized BPF prototypes with desired bandwidths was developed. These prototypes can be scaled to any central frequency and symmetrical real termination in the same way as conventional filters. It is also demonstrated that with a slight modification of the basic BPF prototypes, transmission zeros with controllable frequencies can be introduced in both the lower and the upper stopband region. Such modified prototypes are more convenient for the realization of printed filters than the basic BPF prototypes. The proposed filters have almost identical characteristics in the broad vicinity of the passband region either when composed of ideal lumped elements or of transmission lines (TLs). Due to its simplicity, the proposed concept could be applied for the realization of a printed BPF at a large variety of PCB types, substrates and practical design configurations. A microstrip BPF model is realized for the experimental verification of the presented theory. The measured and theoretical results show excellent agreement, confirming the proposed concept and the exactness of the methodology.
A New Design Method for Ultrawideband Microstrip-to-Suspended Stripline Transitions  [PDF]

International Journal of Antennas and Propagation , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/801950
Abstract: A clear and efficient design method for ultra-wideband microstrip-to-suspended stripline transition, which is based on the analytical expressions of the whole transitional structure, is presented. The conformal mapping is applied to obtain the characteristic impedance of the transitional structure within 2.85% accuracy as compared with the EM-simulation results. The transition is designed to provide broadband impedance matching and smooth field conversion. The implemented transition performs less than 0.6?dB insertion loss per transition for frequencies up to 30?GHz. 1. Introduction Among various planar transmission lines used for microwave and millimeter-wave circuits, suspended stripline (SSL) offers some unique advantages as compared with other transmission lines [1, 2]. (1) SSL yields a higher quality factor than printed stripline and microstrip line (MSL). Since most of the propagated signal energy is carried through the air region rather than through the dielectric layer of the substrate, line losses are considerably reduced, which results in a high Q factor on the order of 500. (2) SSL provides wide impedance ranges because the width of SSL’s strip is wider than MSL under the same characteristic impedance. (3) Since the SSL substrate is suspended at the center of a rectangular waveguide, it is easy to design a capacitance overlapped by top and bottom strips, enabling it to implement high-performance ultrawideband filters [2–6]. (4) Due to the shielded structure, radiation leakage is minimized. On the other hand, MSL is one of the most widely used transmission lines for microwave and millimeter-wave integrated circuits. Using MSL, microwave components—e.g., antennas, couplers, filters, power dividers, and so forth—can be designed with low-cost and compact characteristics [7]. Therefore, to combine the advantages of SSL and MSL simultaneously, it is important to develop a suitable and high performing transition structure between the two different transmission lines, and there were already variously related researches. In [8], an MSL-to-SSL transition using multilayer techniques was reported. The transition bandwidth was up to 12?GHz; however, it lacked the ground continuity between the SSL and the microstrip ground plane. In [9], a transition structure between the shielded MSL and SSL was developed with its available bandwidth up to 40?GHz. However, a clear design guidance including theoretical analysis was not provided. In this paper, a new design method of an ultrawideband MSL-to-SSL transition based on theoretically derived closed-form equations
The Simulation, Design and Implementation of Bandpass Filters in Rectangular Waveguides
Electrical and Electronic Engineering , 2012, DOI: 10.5923/j.eee.20120203.08
Abstract: This paper presents the simulation, design and implementation of bandpass filters in rectangular waveguides. The filters are simulated and designed by using a numerical analysis program based on the Wave Iterative Method (WIM) called WFD (Waveguide Filter Design) simulation. This simulation program can analyze the electrical network of filters. The sample waveguide filter is designed based on a proposed structure consisting of three circuits serving as a simple bandpass filter with two inductive irises and three inductive irises in a cascade. We determined that the operating frequency was equal to approximately 4.20-4.84 GHz. The waveguide filters were then implemented using an aluminum material. The analyzed results for the inductive iris obtained with the WFD program agree well with the results of CST Microwave Studio . Finally, the measured results of sample waveguide filters are consistent with the simulation tool.
Impedance-matched low-pass stripline filters  [PDF]
D. F. Santavicca,D. E. Prober
Physics , 2008, DOI: 10.1088/0957-0233/19/8/087001
Abstract: We have constructed several impedance-matched low-pass filters using a stripline geometry with a dissipative dielectric. The filters are compact, simple to construct, and operate in cryogenic environments. The dissipative dielectric consists of magnetically-loaded silicone or epoxy, which are commercially available under the trade name Eccosorb. For a stripline length of 32 mm, the filters have a passband that extends from dc to a 3 dB bandwidth between 0.3 and 0.8 GHz. The 3 dB bandwidth can be adjusted beyond this range by changing the filter length. An extremely broad stopband at higher frequencies, with attenuation exceeding 100 dB, is achieved along with a return loss greater than 10 dB measured up to 40 GHz. This combination of high attenuation and low reflected power across a broad stopband ensures that spurious or unwanted signals outside the passband do not reach or return to the device under test. This type of filter has applications in microwave frequency measurements of sensitive non-linear devices such as superconducting heterodyne mixers, quantum tunneling devices, and quantum computing elements.
