Miniaturized Planar Ultra-Wideband Bandpass Filter with Notched Band
Abstract: This paper presents a planar ultra-wideband (UWB) bandpass filter with sharp out-of-band rejection performance. The filter is formed by a folded multiple-mode resonator to realize high performance in an operation band from 3.3 to 10 GHz with a very compact size of 20 mm × 20 mm × 0.5 mm. An extra notched band centered at 5.8 GHz is further accomplished by etching a Hilbert fractal curve slit on the filter without the necessity of readjusting the geometrical parameters. The simulated and measured results are in good agreement.
