Net-type resonators with dual- and tri-mode electrical behaviors have been presented and analyzed theoretically in this paper. The proposed net-type resonator is constructed by a short-ended and several open-ended transmission-line sections, which has the advantages of small size and more flexible resonant frequency allocation and is therefore particularly suitable for applications to the design of microwave devices. To verify the usefulness of the proposed resonators, three experimental examples, including a dual-mode bandpass filter, a dual-passband filter, and a triplexer, have been designed and fabricated with microstrip technology. Each of the designed circuits occupies a very small size and has a good upper stop and performance. All measured results are in good agreement with the full-wave simulation results.
