Based on the concept of using controllable mixed electric and magnetic coupling to design planar filters in our earlier work, we propose a novel inline coaxial filter, in which the electric and magnetic coupling can be separately controlled. Due to this controllable mixed coupling, the filter can operate with a quasi-elliptic characteristic. By modifying resonator structure and inserting additional coupling components, the filter size is substantially reduced and the coupling becomes more easily controllable, thus being able to produce a highly selective filter with a compact size. In addition, asymmetric response can be easily achieved. For the N-order filter, a maximum of N - 1 finite transmission zeros can be realized.
