A small-size dual-plane EBG microstrip lowpass filter with a U-shaped microstrip line geometry

A novel small-size dual-plane electromagnetic band-gap (EBG) microstrip lowpass filter with a U-shaped microstrip line geometry is proposed in this paper. With this unique geometry of the microstrip line and the dual-plane arrangement of EBG structures, the proposed structure achieves a flat and deep stopband up to 10 GHz with high selectivity within a… (More)
