An ultra selective filter for 3G and 4G wireless application is presented. The demonstrated filter consists of twenty-two resonators and five cross couplings that produce ten transmission-zeros. The filter was designed at 1950 MHz center frequency with a 20 MHz bandwidth to meet existing 3G wireless applications. The measured data from the filter exhibited excellent selectivity, steeper than 30 dB/100 kHz skirt slope and 90 dB rejection at 350 kHz from the band edge. This filter surpasses the rejection of a 50-pole Chebyshev filter. To design a large number of resonators in a limited wafer area, a new compact resonator was developed. The filter was fabricated using a YBCO thin film on a 2-inch MgO wafer.
