Abstract

An automatic process to design a multiband filter in Non-uniform Transmission Line (NTL) form is presented. The proposed approach supports with Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) technique instead of the traditional methods such as methods based on Inductor-Capacitor filters. The proposed method is described step-by-step and is illustrated by an example emphasizing key points. A critical analysis of this technique is done for emphasizing its limitations. For illustrating the design process, a multiband Ultra Wideband (UWB) filter rejecting two frequency bands is designed.
