This paper presents a compact highly linear tunable second-order quasi-elliptic filter with constant 3-dB bandwidth. The proposed filter is thoroughly analyzed to clearly describe the filter equivalent circuit and the tuning mechanism involved. In addition, the tunable resonator configuration employed is shown to improve filter linearity, especially for low bias voltages where distortion is normally stronger. A quasi-elliptic tunable filter was designed, built, and tested for illustration and verification. With a 3-dB bandwidth variation of only 4.6%, the filter had a frequency coverage from 1.45 to 1.96 GHz, an insertion loss better than 2.5 dB, and measured IIP3 >; 43 dBm throughout. The experimental results are in excellent agreement to theory and simulations.
