Development of theory and circuit solutions of non-minimum-phase planar filters with mixed couplings for telecommunications
The object of the study is non-minimal-phase radio-wave filters of planar design (stripline and microstrip), which, in addition to reflection-type resonators, contain through-type resonators, and which use mixed electromagnetic couplings between resonators.
The subject of research is the influence of mixed electromagnetic coupling on the frequency characteristics of more complex non-minimal-phase planar filters, which should lead to the creation of a new theory.
According to the results of research, the theory of planar non-minimal-phase filters of the third and fourth order for telecommunications with different frequency responses was created. Techniques for constructing these filters have been developed, which do not use low-frequency prototypes, but allow direct calculation of circuit elements. New designs of planar band-pass filters (BPF) with cross couplings, which are characterized by a wide variety of implemented frequency responses, are proposed and analyzed. Along with increased one-sided selectivity, they may have a symmetric frequency response with attenuation pole located to the right and left of the bandwidth. The basis of the filters are pairs of closely spaced step-impedance resonators (SIR), the electromagnetic connection between which is mixed, both capacitive and inductive. Experimental samples of new planar non minimal-phase filters of the third and fourth order for telecommunications are obtained, and the results of their experimental research, which confirm the theoretical provisions of the theory.
