AbstractA novel implementation and associated design formula for a compact low-temperature cofired ceramics (LTCC) lumped-element second-order bandpass filter are proposed in this paper. The filter schematic that provides two finite transmission zeros is well known. It is shown in the paper that the filter schematic is built on a pair of conventional inductive coupled resonator tanks with a feedback capacitor between input and output. While revealing its working mechanism both graphically and mathematically, a simple design procedure for such a compact filter is also given. The proposed filter has been implemented in a six-layer ceramic substrate using LTCC technology, showing promising application potentials in miniaturized mobile terminals and Bluetooth RF front-ends. The measured results agree very well with the full-wave electromagnetic designed responses.
