Ultra-Miniature SIW Cavity Resonators and Filters Conference Paper uri icon


  • 2015 IEEE. This paper presents ultra-miniature substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) cavity resonators, and filters by employing ramp-shaped slots as interdigital capacitors (IDCs) to force the structure to operate in the first negative-order resonance mode. Additionally, a metal patch in the middle metal layer along with disconnected vias is used to increase the equivalent series capacitance of the resonator and accordingly the miniaturization factor. By applying this method to half-mode SIW (HMSIW) and quarter-mode SIW (QMSIW) resonators, 90%, and 95% of miniaturization is achieved, respectively, compared to conventional full-mode SIW resonators. Afterwards, a two-pole bandpass filter is proposed based on the presented QMSIW resonator. Also, by using a combination of HMSIW and QMSIW ultra-miniature resonators, two trisection filters with a controllable transmission zero on either side of the passband are presented. To the best of authors' knowledge, this is the first disclosure of simultaneous use of HMSIW and QMSIW resonators to achieve asymmetric filter response with an ultra-compact size.
