Abstract

This paper proposes a novel bandpass filter for L-band based on CRLH TL, which is mainly formed by coupling a high-pass characteristic module with a low-pass characteristic module in a cascade. The high-pass module consists of an interdigitated coupled line and a grounding via, owning to its singular characteristics, which the miniaturization is realized. The low-pass module is composed of a C-type resonator with high-low impedance lines, which can realize great sideband attenuation characteristics. To further improve its out-of-band rejection characteristics, a complementary split-ring resonator (CSRR) defective ground structure with single-pole attenuation characteristics is loaded, and a transmission zero is introduced at 2.5f0 out-of-band. The test results are in great agreement with the simulation ones, and the dimensions are only 0.20λg*0.22λg. Compared with other similar types, the filter proposed in this paper has miniaturization, great passband selection characteristics, stopband characteristics, and the advantage of low insertion loss.
