This work presents a novel coplanar waveguide (CPW) bandpass filter (BPF) that uses electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) resonators to reduce the size and suppress the harmonic responses. The propagation characteristic of the EBG structure is investigated by its associated equivalent circuit model. Compared with the conventional half-wavelength resonator at 5GHz, the EBG resonator is 60.5 % more compact. Based on the EBG CPW resonators, the inductively-coupled two-pole BPF with 3.8% 3-dB bandwidth and 2-dB insertion loss at 5GHz is implemented. This structure generates a 59.6% reduction in size and suppresses a second harmonic passband when compared with a conventional filter. To eliminate the third harmonic response, the proposed EBG CPW BPF further incorporates two EBG structures into its input and output ports and has the merit of a small circuit area
