A novel cross-coupled bandpass filter using new substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) resonators is presented. The resonator is built up by a SIW cavity loaded with a complementary split-ring resonator (CSRR) on its top metal plane. The resonant modes of the proposed resonator are analyzed, with the Q-factor of the dominant mode also extracted. It is shown that our proposed compact filter operates below the cutoff frequency of conventional SIWs. No spurious responses, corresponding to the higher-order resonant modes of the resonator, appear within an octave band of the central frequency. Its attractive performance is validated numerically and experimentally.
