    • Abstract


      This paper presents a design of compact SIW (substrate integrated waveguide) bandpass filter for application in Ku-band Transmit up-convert frequency (i.e., 13.7–14.1 GHz) used for satellite communications. Based on Defected Microstrip Structure-Defected Ground Structure combination (DMS-DGS), this SIW filterstructure is designed to improve passband and stopband performance. By merging circular ring slot (CRS) with interdigital DGS, better passband characteristics with sharp stopband attenuation are obtained. To validate thedesign, the filter is fabricated using Rogers substrate. The size measures 23.8 mm 9 10 mm and operates at a center frequency of 13.9 GHz. Measured results of the filter agree well with the simulated results. Also, designed BPF filter has advantage of low insertion loss, better return loss, compact size and high stopband rejection
