Coupled lines with loads at one end, which can create tunable transmission zeros, are studied in this paper. The equation for the transmission zeros is derived from the analysis of even- and odd-mode excitations. Based on this equation, coupled lines with different loads are analyzed and the rules for controlling the transmission-zero frequency are given. The structures are used in the designs of several second-order filters and they are experimentally verified. The use of a skew-symmetric (0°) feed structure in these filters is also discussed and an example is given.
