Topic outline

  • In this section we study the most important microwave filter topologies and characteristics, as well as their implementation. Prepare for this lesson and the homework assignements by reading only Sections 8.3, 8.4, 8.6, and 8.7 from Chapter 8 in the course book (3rd or 4th ed.), which describes in large detail the most popular microwave filter-design strategies and their main characteristics, along with practical implementations using parallel stubs, coupled lines, or lumped components..
