The multilayered microwave filters are developed with the assistance of two transmission zeros. Besides a coupled line connected to one capacitor, another capacitor cross coupled between the source and load ports is utilised for the proposed filters. By properly adjusting the coupling coefficients between the coupled line and two capacitors, two transmission zeros would appear on the lower side, the higher side or on both sides of the passband skirt. Thus, the characteristics can be employed for diplexers or dual-band filters to make dual-mode portable telephones. Moreover, to miniaturise the circuit sizes and improve their performances, multilayered structure and the low-temperature co-fired ceramic technology are adopted for filter fabrication. The theorem of filter synthesis and procedures of filter design are also presented. Finally, the proposed structure is validated by an agreement between measured results of fabricated filters and the electromagnetic simulation.
