Introduction to Theory, Analysis, and Design of Microwave Filters in New Era of Wireless
Organizers :  Masataka Ohira (Saitama Univ.)
Chair :  Hiroyuki Kayano (Toshiba Corp.)

In this tutorial lecture, the basic theory, analysis, and design method of microwave bandpass filters are described for easy learning from the knowledge acquired through study of electric circuits. For the future step to the design of advanced microwave filters, the lecture is based on the coupling matrix used for the designs of recent coupled resonator filters.
More specifically, it contains five parts:
(1) typical transfer functions employed for approximation of filter responses,
(2) examples of coupling topologies to realize the transfer functions,
(3) circuit analysis using the coupling matrix,
(4) circuit synthesis,
and(5) physical dimension design of microwave filters based on coupling coefficients and external Q factors.
Design examples are provided to demonstrate microstrip filter designs with the effective use of EM simulators.
