Novel compact ultra-wideband (UWB) bandpass filter (BPF) using stub-loaded multiple-mode resonator (MMR) is presented in this letter. The MMR is constructed by loading three open stubs in a uniform-impedance resonator, i.e., one stepped-impedance stub at the center and two uniform-impedance stubs at the symmetrical side locations. Five modes, including two odd modes and three even modes, could be designed within UWB band, and two transmission zeros generated by the stepped-impedance stub improve the passband selectivity greatly. The letter shows modal resonant frequencies against the step-impedance-stub-loaded parameters, which can control the even modes flexibly, while the odd modes remain the same. A compact planar UWB BPF is simulated, fabricated and measured. The simulated and measured results are in good agreement and show good in-band filtering performance and sharp selectivity.
