Intuitive Microwave Filter Design

This three-hour workshop, presented by Dan Swanson from SW Filter Design, will focus on two detailed filter design examples using NI AWR Design Environment and SW Filter Design software.

Date:

Tuesday, 10 October

Location:

EuMW 2017
Nuremberg, Germany
NCC East, Level 2, Room Krakau

Time:

13:00 – 16:00

Overview:

The first example is a microstrip combline filter and the second is a narrowband, high Q-cavity combline filter. The same design strategy, based on Dishal’s method and port tuning, will be used for both filters.

  • Step 1 will be to determine the required coupling coefficients and external Q for our filter.
  • Step 2 will be to define a suitable resonator that has enough unloaded Q to meet our insertion loss requirement.
  • Step 3 will be to build design curves that relate coupling coefficients and external Q to physical dimensions in our filter.
  • Step 4 we will build a virtual prototype of the complete filter and apply port tuning. The port tuning procedure will demonstrate how to adjust each resonator frequency and all the couplings between resonators, including cross-couplings.
  • Step 5 we will build a two-port EM model of our filter and confirm that we are meeting our specification.
