This paper proposes a tunable combline bandpass filter with high selectivity, constant bandwidth, and good stopband performances. A filter with these characteristics is obtained by applying cross-coupling to the conventional combline bandpass filter using stepped-impedance resonators(SIRs). For high selectivity and constant bandwidth, cross-coupling is utilized and the SIR configuration is used for enhanced stopband performances. The proposed combline tunable bandpass filter with 5% of fractional bandwidth at 1.6 GHz was fabricated and tested. The measured results showed 11.6% tunability with constant bandwidth, high selectivity and enhanced stopband characteristics.
Key words: Combline Filters, Stepped-Impedance Resonator, Cross-Coupling, Microstrip Filters, Transmission Zeros, Tunable Filters
