Novel Dual band SIW Filter Using Quad mode Cavity
A dual-band bandpass substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) filter is proposed using a quad-mode cavity in this paper. First two degenerative modes (TE102 and TE201) with via perturbation give the first passband. The second passband is realised by using higher modes (side and diagonal modes of TE202) which are obtained by putting square slot at the center of the cavity. The square slot increases the frequency ratio of the center frequencies of first and second passbands. Moreover, orthogonal feed-lines are used in the proposed design to increase transmission zeros (TZs) which helps to improve the selectivity and out-of-band rejection of the filter. Designed and fabricated a dualband filter prototype using a single layer printed circuit board (PCB) technology, size is only 19 mm × 19 mm. The insertion losses are 2.1 dB and 2.4 dB, and fractional bandwidths of 3.40 per cent and 2.00 per cent at 11.00 and 15.58 GHz, respectively. The measurement results show close agreement with the simulation results.
