Since the first edition of this unparalleled review of radio frequency (RF)/microwave filters based on the microstrip structure was published, further innovations in filter realizations and other applications have occurred with changes in technology and use of new fabrication processes. The microstrip has seen a new trend of the combined use of other planar trans–mission line structures in order to achieve filter miniaturization and better performance.
Now, this well–received, widely used professional reference has been thoroughly updated to focus on both microstrip and planar filters, which find wide applications in today′s wireless, microwave, communications, and radar systems. It offers a unique and comprehensive treatment of filters based on the microstrip and planar structures, and includes full design methodologies that are applicable to waveguide and other transmission line filters. This updated edition covers a wealth of new materials, including:
Co–planar waveguide and slotlines
General coupling matrix including source and load
Non–degenerate dual–mode filters
Filters with defected ground structures
Substrate integrated waveguide filters
Liquid crystal polymer and low–temperature co–fired ceramic multilayer filters
High–temperature superconducting filters for mobile/satellite communications and radio astronomy
Ultra wideband filters
Tunable and reconfigurable filters
This intensively revised book utilizes numerous examples of novel and sophisticated filters using computer–aided design with commercially available software, from basic concepts to practical realizations. It remains not only a valuable design resource for professional engineers designing filters for communications and microwave applications, but also a handy reference for students and researchers in RF and microwave engineering.
