ABSTRACT This letter presents the designs of dual-band bandpass filters using two coupling paths to control the bandwidth of each passband. One coupling path only delivers signals at the upper passband frequency whereas the other one couple signals at both passbands. Utilizing this method, the two bandwidths can be adjusted. The filters make use of stub-loaded resonators and it is convenient to tune the passband frequencies. Therefore, both the frequency and bandwidth of each passband can be easily controlled. For demonstration purpose, two example filters are implemented with different bandwidths. The experimental results are presented to verify the proposed method.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents that the extra passband with two transmission zeros can be obtained by adding shunt open stubs to the asymmetric half-wavelength resonators structure. By using this method, a fourth or even higher passband with good selectivity and compact size can be obtained. Dual-band, tri-band and quad-band bandpass filters are demonstrated by using this method. The measured bandwidth is 80/180 MHz for the dual-band, 60/180/180 MHz for the tri-band and 130/360/170/70 MHz for the quad-band filter, respectively. The measured insertion loss for the dual-band, tri-band and quad-band filter is less than 2.7 dB, 2.5 dB and 2.9 dB at the center frequency. All the simulated results and the measured results agree well.

    ABSTRACT: AbstractA microstrip dual‐band bandpass filter (BPF) with controllable bandwidth and good selectivity is proposed.The two bands are realized by using stub‐loaded resonators, that is, open‐stub loaded resonator (OSLR) and short‐stub loaded resonator (SSLR). The first band is realized by the combination of the even‐mode of SSLR and the odd‐mode of OSLR, while the second band is realized by the combination of the odd‐mode of SSLR and the even‐mode of OSLR, thus, the coupling of each band could be controlled by independently adjusting the mode frequencies of resonators, and transmission zeros are introduced due to the multipath effect beside each passband. A 2.4/3.5 GHz dual‐band filter with good selectivity and good stopband performance is designed and fabricated. The measured results agree well with the simulated predictions. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Microwave Opt Technol Lett 54:1525–1528, 2012; View this article online at wileyonlinelibrary.com.

    ABSTRACT: A compact microstrip-line dual-band bandpass filter using a short stub-loaded resonator is presented. The resonator is formed by loading one short stub in shunt to a simple uniform impedance line. A key merit of the filter configuration is that the center frequency and bandwidth of the first passband can be conveniently controlled by properly adjusting the lengths of the short stubs and the coupling between the short stubs, whereas those of the second passband are fixed. To illustrate the concept, a third-order dual-band filter is designed, fabricated and measured. Simulated and measured results are found to be in good agreement with each other.
