Abstract

This paper presents a new bandwidth tuning theory for Butterworth-response resonator filters. The presented theory shows that the bandwidth of odd-order Butterworth filters can be varied by adjusting only two interresonator coupling structures while maintaining a perfect impedance matching at the center frequency. In other words, this paper presents an analytic approach to reduce the number of tunable coupling structures when designing a bandwidth-tunable resonator filter. Theories for third- A nd fifth-order direct-coupled filters are discussed in detail, and it is shown that only two interresonator coupling structures are required to be tunable. In addition, for verifying the new bandwidth tuning method, a fifth-order cylindrical cavity filter has been designed, fabricated, and measured. The fabricated filter has an 11:1 bandwidth tuning range.
