A new design of a planar microwave filter, based on rejection band properties of an electrically small electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) structure, is proposed. The proposed EBG structure demonstrates effective impedance manipulation, exhibits a simple analysis, and is about three times smaller as compared to stepped-impedance hairpin (SIH) resonators with similar response. The new bandpass filter has a reduced footprint and can be fabricated in standard thick-film manufacturing technology. Measured and simulated results exhibit good agreement. The measured results show improvement in the filter characteristics in comparison to existing SIH filter design.
