In this letter, an ultra-wideband (UWB) bandpasss filter with multiple notch bands is presented. The UWB bandpass characteristic is achieved using a modified distributed highpass filter (HPF) and suppressing higher order harmonics of the HPF by realizing defected stepped impedance resonator. The dual band notches at 5.75 and 8.05 GHz are obtained by embedding two open stubs on the main microstrip line. The in band and out of band performance obtained from fullwave electromagnetic simulation, equivalent circuit model and measurement are in good agreement.
