Design and Fabrication of a Compact Passive Lowpass Filter with Very Ultra Wide Stopband
Gholamhosein Moloudian* and Massoud Dousti
Abstract Microstrip lowpass filters (LPFs) with good performance are used in most telecommunication systems. The important features of a LPF include wide stopband and high figure of merit. In this study, a resonator was used to design a LPF. Three suppression cells were also used to widen the stopband by up to 40 GHz. The filter cut-off frequency is equal to 1.2 GHz. The results show that the stopband width, with consideration of -30 dB attenuation, is equal to 34.2 GHz and its figure-of-merit is equal to 34620. The simulated, measured and LC equivalent circuit results of the proposed LPF are in good agreement and the filter dimensions were equal to 0.110.08 g2.
