In this letter, an ultrawideband (UWB) bandpass filter with a band notch is proposed. The UWB BPF (3.1-10.6 GHz) is realized by cascading a distributed high-pass filter and an elliptic low-pass filter with an embedded stepped impedance resonator (SIR) to achieve a band notch characteristic. The notch band is obtained at 5.22 GHz. It is shown that the notch frequency can be tuned by changing the impedance ratio of the embedded SIR. A fabricated prototype of the proposed UWB bandpass filter is developed. The inband and out-of-band performance obtained by measurement, EM simulation, and that with an equivalent circuit model are in good agreement.
