Composite filter

m<0.6 for m-derived section is to place the pole near the cutoff frequency(wc)

For 1/2 p matching network , we choose the Z’1 and Z’2 of the circuit so that

Image method

Let’s say we have image impedance for the network Zi1 and Zi2

Where

Zi1= input impedance at port 1 when port 2 is terminated with Zi2

Zi2= input impedance at port 2 when port 1 is terminated with Zi1

Where Zi2= V2 / I2

Then

@

and V1 = -Zi1 I1

Propagation constant (from page 11), we have

• Two regions can be considered
• w<wc : passband of filter --> Zit become real and g is imaginary (g= jb )
• since w2/wc2-1<1
• w>wc : stopband of filter_--> Zit become imaginary and g is real (g= a )
• since w2/wc2-1<1

Propagation constant is the same as T-network

10

Constant-k section for high-pass filter using T-network

If we define a cutoff frequency

And nominal characteristic impedance

Zi T= Zo when w =

Then

11

Constant-k section for high-pass filter using p-network

Zi p= Zo when w=

Propagation constant is the same for both T and p-network

12

m-derived filter T-section

Constant-k section suffers from very slow attenuation rate and non-constant image impedance . Thus we replace Z1 and Z2 to Z’1 and Z’2 respectively.

Let’s Z’1 = m Z1 and Z’2 to obtain the same ZiT as in constant-k section.

Solving for Z’2, we have

Propagation constant

continue

If we restrict 0 < m < 1 and

Thus, both equation reduces to

Then

When w < wc, eg is imaginary. Then the wave is propagated in the network. When wc<w <wop, eg is positive and the wave will be attenuated. When w = wop, eg becomes infinity which implies infinity attenuation. When w>wop, then eg become positif but decreasing.,which meant decreasing in attenuation.

16

Comparison between m-derived section and constant-k section

M-derived section attenuates rapidly but after w>wop , the attenuation reduces back . By combining the m-derived section and the constant-k will form so called composite filter.This is because the image impedances are nonconstant.

17

High -pass m-derived T-section

and

Propagation constant

where

18

continue

Thus wop< wc

If we restrict 0 < m < 1 and

Thus, both equation reduces to

Then

When w < wop , eg is positive. Then the wave is gradually attenuated in the networ as function of frequency. When w = wop, eg becomes infinity which implies infinity attenuation. When wc>w >wop, eg is becoming negative and the wave will be propagted.

M-derived section seem to be resonated at w=wop due to serial LC circuit. By combining the m-derived section and the constant-k will form composite filter which will act as proper highpass filter.

The image impedance is

Then

and

Therefore, the image impedance reduces to

The best result for m is 0.6which give a good constant Zip . This type of m-derived section can be used at input and output of the filter to provide constant impedance matching to or from Zo .

22

Matching between constant-k and m-derived

The image impedance ZiT does not match Zip, I.e

The matching can be done by using half- p section as shown below and the image impedance should be Zi1= ZiT and Zi2=Zip

It can be shown that

Note that

Example #1

Design a low-pass composite filter with cutoff frequency of 2GHz and impedance of 75W . Place the infinite attenuation pole at 2.05GHz, and plot the frequency response from 0 to 4GHz.

Where A is the attenuation at w1 point and w1>wc

Example #2

Calculate the inductance and capacitance values for a maximally-flat low-pass filter that has a 3dB bandwidth of 400MHz. The filter is to be connected to 50 ohm source and load impedance.The filter must has a high attenuation of 20 dB at 1 GHz.

Solution

Prototype values

g0 = g 3+1 = 1

First , determine the number of elements

34

Thus choose an integer value , I.e n=3

or

Example #3

Design a 3 section Chebyshev low-pass filter that has a ripple of 0.05dB and cutoff frequency of 1 GHz.

From the formula given we have

F1=1.4626 F2= 1.1371

a1=1.0 a2=2.0

b1=2.043

g1 = g3 = 0.8794

g2= 1.1132

39

Transformation from low-pass to high-pass
• Series inductor Lk must be replaced by capacitor C’k
• Shunts capacitor Ck must be replaced by inductor L’k

40

Transformation from low-pass to band-pass

and

where

• Now we consider the series inductor

normalized

• Thus , series inductor Lk must be replaced by serial Lsk and Csk

Impedance= series

41

continue

Now we consider the shunt capacitor

• Shunts capacitor Ck must be replaced by parallel Lpk and Cpk

42

Transformation from low-pass to band-stop

and

where

• Now we consider the series inductor --convert to admittance
• Thus , series inductor Lk must be replaced by parallel Lpk and Cskp

43

Continue

Now we consider the shunt capacitor --> convert to impedance

• Shunts capacitor Ck must be replaced by parallel Lpk and Cpk

44

Example #4

Design a band-pass filter having a 0.5 dB ripple response, with N=3. The center frequency is 1GHz, the bandwidth is 10%, and the impedance is 50W.

Solution

From table 8.4 Pozar pg 452.

go=1 , g1=1.5963, g2=1.0967, g3= 1.5963, g4= 1.000

Let’s first and third elements are equivalent to series inductance and g1=g3, thus

45

continue

Second element is equivalent to parallel capacitance, thus

46

Implementation in microstripline

Equivalent circuit

A short transmission line can be equated to T and p circuit of lumped circuit. Thus from ABCD parameter( refer to Fooks and Zakareviius ‘Microwave Engineering using microstrip circuits” pg 31-34), we have

Model for series inductor with fringing capacitors

Model for shunt capacitor with fringing inductors

47

p-model with C as fringing capacitance

T-model with L as fringing inductance

ZoC should be low impedance

ZoL should be high impedance

48

Example #5

From example #3, we have the solution for low-pass Chebyshev of ripple 0.5dB at 1GHz, Design a filter using in microstrip on FR4 (er=4.5 h=1.5mm)

Let’s choose ZoL=100W and ZoC =20 W.

Note: For more accurate calculate for difference Zo

49

continue

The new values for L1=L3= 7nH-0.75nH= 6.25nH and C2=3.543pF-0.369pF=3.174pF

Thus the corrected value for d1,d2 and d3 are

More may be needed to obtain sufficiently stable solutions

50

Implementation using stub

Richard’s transformation

At cutoff unity frequency,we have x=1. Then

The length of the stub will be the same with length equal to l/8. The Zo will be difference with short circuit for L and open circuit for C.These lines are called commensurate lines.

52

Kuroda identity

It is difficult to implement a series stub in microstripline. Using Kuroda identity, we would be able to transform S.C series stub to O.C shunt stub

d=l/8

53

Example #6

Design a low-pass filter for fabrication using micro strip lines .The specification: cutoff frequency of 4GHz , third order, impedance 50 W, and a 3 dB equal-ripple characteristic.

Protype Chebyshev low-pass filter element values are

g1=g3= 3.3487 = L1= L3 , g2 = 0.7117 = C2 , g4=1=RL

Using Richard’s transform we have

ZoL= L=3.3487

and

Zoc=1/ C=1/0.7117=1.405

Example #7

Design a coupled line bandpass filter with n=3 and a 0.5dB equi-ripple response on substrate er=10 and h=1mm. The center frequency is 2 GHz, the bandwidth is 10% and Zo=50W.

We have g0=1 , g1=1.5963, g2=1.0967, g3=1.5963, g4= 1 and W=0.1

The required resonator

Using the graph Fig 7.30 in Pozar pg388 we would be able to determine the required s/h and w/h of microstripline with er=10. For others use other means.

60

Thus we have

For sections 1 and 4 s/h=0.45 --> s=0.45mm and w/h=0.7--> w=0.7mm

For sections 2 and 3 s/h=1.3 --> s=1.3mm and w/h=0.95--> w=0.95mm

61

Example #8

Design a band-stop filter using three quarter-wave open-circuit stubs . The center frequency is 2GHz , the bandwidth is 15%, and the impedance is 50W. Use an equi-ripple response, with a 0.5dB ripple level.

We have g0=1 , g1=1.5963, g2=1.0967, g3=1.5963, g4= 1 and W=0.1

Note that: It is difficult to impliment on microstripline or stripline for characteristic > 150W.

63

Example #9

Design a band-pass filter using capacitive coupled resonators , with a 0.5dB equal-ripple pass-band characteristic . The center frequency is 2GHz, the bandwidth is 10%, and the impedance 50W. At least 20dB attenuation is required at 2.2GHz.

First , determine the order of filter, thus calculate
