Compact Elliptic-Function Low-Pass Filter Using Defected Ground Structure


A novel elliptic-function low-pass filter (LPF) is presented, which consists of a dumb-bell-shaped defected ground structure (DB-DGS), a spiral-shaped defected ground structure (SP-DGS) and a broadened microstrip line. The DB-DGS provides the required wideband attenuation in stopband, while the SP-DGS provides steep transition from passband to stopband. A 2… (More)
