Design and Analysis of a Compact GSM/GPS Dual-Band Bandpass Filter Using a T-Shaped Resonator
This study presents an ultracompact dual-band bandpass filter with controllable transmission zeros based on quarter-wave dual-mode resonator for GSM (global system for mobile communications) and GPS (global positioning system) wireless applications. The filter is made up of two quarter-wave resonators, which help to independently control the passbands. A direct feed resonator creates the first operating band, which serves as a feeding source for the interior resonator and operates at a higher frequency band. Therefore, a pair of transmission zeros can be energized between the two passbands, and high roll-off skirts are obtained. To reduce the size of the entire filter, the two resonators are bent and connected together through a hole in a metal base. The structure is symmetrical in nature, so both frequency bands can be obtained using the even-odd mode analysis method. For GSM applications, the center frequency of the first working band is 850 MHz, while for GPS wireless applications, the center frequency of the second working band is 1.57 GHz. Although there is a feed line (λg is based on a waveguide length of 850 MHz), the filter has been simulated and fabricated for verification, with an ultra-compact size of 0.10 λg X 0.09 λg (0.0095 λg2). The simulation results and measured results match well, and the theory of the design concept is recognized.
