A novel dual-band planar filter is proposed in this paper. It is shown that the two transmission bands can be excited and designed using proposed resonators which combine different sizes of open-loop resonators. The main resonators control the low-band resonant frequency and the sub resonators control the high-band resonant frequency. With 0◦ feed structures added, the frequency selectivity of the filter is greatly improved. And the proposed filter also has advantages as low insertion loss and miniature size. The measurement of the filter is in good agreement with the simulation.
