This letter presents a novel low-pass filter with an ultra-wide stopband. The proposed filter is comprised of a new cross-shape defected ground structure (CSDGS). By using this structure, the filter not only supports conventional DGS performances with a sharp rejection, but also exhibits an ultra-wide stopband. For the deigned low-pass filter, an insertion loss of less than 2dB from dc to 3.5GHz and the rejection is better than 20dB from 4.3 to 15.8GHz. Predicted performances show widened and deepened stopband beyond the low passband. Furthermore, it is confirmed by measurement.
