A compact channel-dropping filter geometry is described that is particularly suited for stripline and microwave integrated circuits (MIC). The channel-dropping filter is comprised of a hairpin bandpass filter and a new bandstop filter, referred to herein as a folded-line bandstop filter. Design parameters for the latter filter for a range of bandwidths are tabulated. Analytical and experimental data for a trial channel-dropping filter are presented and discussed.
