In this letter, six-pole filters are presented, in which the coaxial cavity resonators are arranged with 90 degree rotated spatial orientation. Cross-coupling between nonadjacent resonators will appear. In the new proposed filter topologies the cross-coupling elements are not arranged in separated triplet or quadruplet blocks. They interlace to form distributed cross-coupling. Synthesis of the distributed coupling matrix based on the symmetric canonical prototype is discussed. Two different bandpass filter topologies are presented. The first one has an inline arrangement of six orthogonal coaxial cavity resonators. Its distributed cross-coupling consists of four interlaced triplets, which generate two transmission zeros above the passband. The second filter design has a folded arrangement of two inline triplets with strong cross-coupling. An additional interlaced quadruplet pushes the resulting transmission zeros to the complex frequency domain. Measurement results of two corresponding filter prototypes confirm the predicted performance.
