Multiband Multimode Filter for Wireless Applications
This paper reports, design, analysis, and characterization of multimode resonator based multiband band pass filter. In support to the actual response, principle of resonating structure is explained with related mathematical explanations. For validating the concept, a quad-band BPF have been implemented on Neltec substrate and characterized through Keysight vector network analyzer N9918A. All the measured and simulated results are in good agreement with each other.
