A novel miniaturized parallel coupled-line bandpass filter with suppression of second and third harmonic frequencies is demonstrated in this paper. This new filter is based on the capacitive termination on the conventional parallel coupled line to achieve size minimization, while the spurious responses are eliminated by the over-coupling approach. These features offer the classical parallel coupled-line bandpass filter simultaneous compactness and wide stopband performance. The simulations and measurements of a 900-MHz prototype bandpass filter are presented. The measured results agree well with the simulation. Compared with the conventional parallel coupled-line bandpass filter, the measured second and third spurious responses are suppressed to -64 and -55 dB, respectively. In addition, the circuitry size of the prototype filter can be reduced up to 25%.
