A novel ultra wideband (UWB) bandpass filter with double notch-bands is presented in this paper. Multilayer schematic is adopted to achieve compact size. Stepped impedance resonators (SIRs), which can also suppress harmonic response, are designed on top and second layers, respectively, and broadside coupling technique is used to achieve tight couplings for a wide passband. Folded SIRs that can provide desired notch-bands are designed on the third layer and coupled underneath the second layer SIRs. The designed prototype is fabricated using multilayer liquid crystal polymer (LCP) technology. Good agreement between simulated and measured response is observed. The fabricated filter has dual notch-bands with center frequencies of 6.4/8.0 GHz with 3 dB bandwidths of 9.5%/13.4% and high rejection levels up to 26.4 dB and 43.7 dB at 6.4/8.0 GHz are observed, respectively. It also has low-insertion losses and flat group delay in passbands, and excellent stopband rejection level higher than 30.0 dB from 11.4 GHz to 18.0 GHz. © 2006 IEEE.
