A new technique is developed for designing a composite microstrip bandpass filter (BPF) with a 3 dB fractional bandwidth of more than 100%. The BPF is suitable for ultra-wideband (UWB) wireless communications. The design utilizes embedding individually designed highpass structures and lowpass filters (LPF) into each other, followed by an optimization for tuning in-band performance. The stepped-impedance LPF is employed to attenuate the upper stopband and quarter-wave short-circuited stubs are used to realize the lower stopband. Two such BPFs are fabricated and measured to demonstrate the performance.
