This paper presents a four-pole elliptic tunable combline bandpass filter with center frequency and bandwidth control. The filter is built on a Duroid substrate with εr=10.2 and h=25 mils, and the tuning is done using packaged Schottky diodes. A frequency range of 1.55-2.1 GHz with a 1-dB bandwidth tuning from 40-120 MHz (2.2-8% fractional bandwidth) is demonstrated. A pair of tunable transmission zeroes are synthesized at both passband edges and significantly improve the filter selectivity. The rejection level at both the lower and upper stopbands is >; 50 dB and no spurious response exists close to the passband. The measured third-order intermodulation intercept point (TOI) and 1-dB power compression point at midband (1.85 GHz) and a bandwidth of 110 MHz are >; 14& dBm and 6 dBm, respectively, and are limited by the Schottky diodes. It is believed that this is the first four-pole combline tunable bandpass filter with an elliptic function response and center frequency and bandwidth control. The application areas are in tunable filters for wireless systems and cognitive radios.
