Abstract

A new fourth-order balanced dual-band band-pass filter (BPF) designed using four coupled bi-section half-wavelength (λ/2) stepped-impedance resonators (SIRs) is presented. To obtain the required differential-mode (DM) operation with suppressed common-mode (CM) transmission, the SIRs were designed to have the same odd-mode, but different even-mode, resonant frequencies. For that purpose, the two inner SIRs were loaded at the center with T-shaped open stubs of different dimensions so that their even-mode resonant frequencies are shifted away from those of the outer SIRs and that their odd-mode ones remain almost intact. For the fabricated prototype BPF, the measured minimum DM insertion losses for the first and second bands are 2.4 and 2.82 dB, respectively, whereas the measured CM insertion loss is larger than 25 dB in 17 GHz.
