How Port Tuning Makes Filter Design More Efficient

In this article, the design of a miniature hairpin resonator filter is presented to demonstrate how port tuning can accelerate the design of planar filters. In the example presented, the Nuhertz FilterSolutions software is used to design a microstrip miniature hairpin resonator filter, which is then exported to the AXIEM 3D planar EM simulator within the NI AWR Design Environment, where it is optimized to obtain the desired performance.
 
This article presents the design of a miniature hairpin resonator filter using Nuhertz software combined with NI AWR Design Environment.
