This paper presents the design of a new dual-band filter with very wide upper stopband. The proposed circuit offers a simple and compact structure with low insertion loss. Spurious suppression is achieved by using specially designed coupling and resonator sections. Moreover, a systematic analysis is applied to the proposed topology with closed-form design equations derived. For verification purposes, the measured performance of a microstrip filter operating at 1 and 2 GHz is shown with stopband attenuation of greater than 20 dB over the frequency range from 2.5 to 8.0 GHz.
