Abstract

Broadband microstrip filter operating within 1.5GHz bandwidth at UHF range for RF communication systems has been designed, simulated, and implemented using a practical network parameter method. The design has been performed using the network parameter method with ABCD parameters, which simplified the analysis significantly. The analytical, simulated and measured results have been compared and excellent agreement is observed. It has been shown that the network parameter method such as the one presented in this paper can be used to design and implement broadband microstrip filters with high accuracy.
