|Abstract:||In this paper, a new microstrip interdigital even-mode half-wavelength type stepped impedance resonator (SIR) based bandpass filter (BPF) for I-band applications is presented. The bandpass filter characteristic depends on the self-resonant frequency of the interdigital resonated arms. The combination of the interdigital arm structures behaves as an interdigital capacitance coupling between port 1 and port 2. The self generated capacitive and inductive reactances of the interdigital resonators interacted in order to obtain a resonance at 9.4 GHz. The resonant frequency and the bandwidth of the filter are directly optimized as a result of the physical arrangement of the interdigital resonators. The measured insertion loss (S21) and the return loss (S11) are –0.85 dB and –28.0 dB, respectively, at the 9.4 GHz resonant frequency.|
