Resumen:

This paper is focused on the synthesis of capacitively loaded coupled lines for the design of bandpass filters with compact size and spurious suppression. The filters consist of cascaded pairs of coupled lines periodically loaded with patch capacitors. The loading capacitances provide a slow-wave effect to the coupled lines useful for filter miniaturization, whereas periodicity introduces bandgaps that can be controlled in order to achieve spurious suppression. Filter design is achieved following an automated process based on aggressive space mapping (ASM) optimization. The two reported examples, a third-order filter with central frequency f0 = 1.0 GHz, 8% fractional bandwidth, and 0.1-dB ripple level and a fifth-order filter with central frequency f0 = 1.8 GHz, 8% fractional bandwidth, and 0.1-dB ripple level, demonstrate the potential of the proposed ASM-based design approach, as well as the effectiveness of the …
