Tuning space mapping (TSM) is one of the latest developments in space mapping technology. TSM algorithms offer a remarkably fast design optimisation with satisfactory results obtained after one or two iterations, which amounts to just a few electromagnetic simulations of the optimised microwave structure. The TSM algorithms (as exemplified by `Type-1` tuning) could be simply implemented manually. The approach may require interaction between various electromagnetic-based and circuit models, as well as handling different sets of design variables and control parameters. As a result, certain TSM algorithms (especially so-called `Type-0` tuning) may be tedious, thus, error-prone to implement. Here, we present a fully automated tuning space mapping implementation that exploits the functionality of our user-friendly space mapping software, the SMF system. The operation and performance of our new implementation is illustrated through the design of a box-section Chebyshev bandpass filter and a capacitively coupled dual-behaviour resonator filter.
