Abstract

In this paper, we present a reconfigurable filter capable of having three different responses, such as bandstop, bandpass, and all-pass responses. For designing the tri-function filter, we have developed a new topology containing coupled resonators and a switch-embedded transmission line running from the input to output ports. A bandpass response can be obtained by opening the switches embedded in the transmission line. On the other hand, closing the switches produces bandstop and all-pass responses. The details of the coupling structure design satisfying three sets of the coupling coefficients for the three responses are presented. In addition, we also discuss in detail an approach for incorporating the measured parameters of the nonideal switch in our filter design. For demonstration, a frequency-tunable tri-function filter has been designed using substrate-integrated waveguide resonators. It is shown that the designed filter is able to exhibit three responses over a 1.2:1 frequency tuning range.
