In this paper, patent pending substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) bandpass filters with moderate fractional bandwidth and improved stopband performance are proposed and demonstrated for a Ka-band satellite ground terminal. Nonphysical cross-coupling provided by higher order modes in the oversized SIW cavities is used to generate the finite transmission zeros far away from the passband for improved stopband performance. Different input/output topologies of the filter are discussed for wide stopband applications. Design considerations including the design approach, filter configuration, and tolerance analysis are addressed. Two fourth-order filters with a passband of 19.2-21.2 GHz are fabricated on a single-layer Rogers RT/Duroid 6002 substrate using linear arrays of metallized via-holes by a standard printed circuit board process. Measured results of the two filters agree very well with simulated results, showing the in-band insertion loss is 0.9 dB or better, and the stopband attenuation in the frequency band of 29.5-30 GHz is better than 50 dB. Measurements over a temperature range of -20degC to +40degC show the passband remains almost unchanged.
