Improvement of Stopband Property of Parallel Coupled Microstrip Bandpass Filters by Use of Open Stubs

Maryam Jaldi and Majid Tayarni

Abstract—In this paper a novel method is presented for suppressing spurious response of parallel coupled microstrip filters. This technique is based on introducing open stubs to the filter. A third order filter is presented with central frequency at 3GHZ. The filter insertion is less than 1 dB. The harmonic suppression at the first and second harmonic is more than 20 dB and 25 dB, respectively. The performance of the new filter is also compared with characteristic of a conventionally designed filter to highlight the advantages of the proposed designed filter.

Index Terms—Bandpass filer, parallel coupled, spurious response, stub.
