A miniature dual-band filter using quarter wavelength (lambdag/4) stepped impedance resonators (SIRs) is proposed. Short and open SIRs are coupled together to realize lower and upper passbands, respectively. Miniaturization is achieved due to the use of lambdag/4 resonators and a combline coupling structure. Two transmission zeros in a mid-stopband and one in each lower and upper stopbands are achieved. In order to see the capability of this structure to achieve different second passband frequencies, two dual band filters at frequencies of 2.45/5.25 GHz and 2.45/5.75 GHz are realized. Measured insertion losses are 1.3 dB and 2.3 dB and return losses are better than 17 dB and 18 dB at the first and second passband frequencies, respectively, with a mid-stopband attenuation better than 30 dB. The size of the filter is as compact as 19.0 times 5.2 mm2 on a RO 4003C (epsivr = 3.38, h = 0.81 mm) substrate.
