This paper presents a new type of a negative coupling structure for designing elliptic-response filters with cross-coupling. The proposed coupling structure consists of short-circuited coupled transmission lines. Using the fact that insertion phase of the coupled line structure is different from that of an inductive iris, it is shown that the proposed coupling structure can be used as the negative coupling structure. In order to verify the proposed coupling structure, we designed a 4th-order cross-coupled elliptic-response bandpass filter with substrate integrated waveguide resonators. A pair of transmission zeros in measurement and simulation results validates that the proposed structure can be used as the negative coupling structure.
