Two novel wideband differential bandpass filters based on a T-shaped structure are proposed in this paper. Broad passband and wideband harmonic suppression for the differential/common mode can be easily achieved for the wideband differential filter without cross coupling, due to the controlled resonator frequencies of the shorted/open T-shaped structure. In addition, another more compact differential filter using cross coupling is proposed with two transmission zeros close to the passband to improve the selectivity for the differential mode. To verify the presented concept, two prototypes (εr = 2.65, h = 0.5 mm) with 3-dB fractional bandwidth of 70% and 70.7% for the differential mode and insertion loss greater than 13.5 dB for common mode (0-19 GHz) are designed and fabricated. Good agreement can be observed between measured results and theoretical expectations.
