A novel millimeter-wave waveguide bandpass filter structure suitable for surface mounting is introduced. The filter is constructed using a rectangular waveguide formed in MMIC substrate employing recently introduced microstrip-to-waveguide transducer. Input and output of the filter are implemented as microstrip lines. The transitions between the microstrip lines and the rectangular waveguide are implemented by using the microstrip-to-waveguide transition. The waveguide filter structure is surface-mountable as flip-chip and can be manufactured using a MMIC process that makes it extremely accurate. It has potential applications in millimeter-wave systems like local multipoint distribution system (LMDS) and autonomous cruise control (ACC) radar for automobiles.
