This paper describes a new low-pass filter topology based on tapered periodic structures. These filters exhibit interesting characteristics in terms of compactness, return loss, insertion loss, selectivity, and the suppression of spurious frequency bands. Hybrid prototypes with a 1-GHz cutoff frequency, based on a coplanar-waveguide technology, and using… CONTINUE READING
