In this paper, we propose a design method for a diplexer using a surface acoustic wave (SAW) filter, a multilayer ceramic filter, chip inductors, and chip capacitors. A controllable transmission zero can be created in the stopband by designing matching circuits based on the out-of-band characteristics of the SAW filter using this method. The proposed method can achieve good attenuation performance and a compact size because it does not use an additional resonator for creating the controllable transmission zero and the matching circuits are composed of only five components. A diplexer is designed for 2.4 GHz wireless systems and a global positioning system receiver using the proposed method. It is compact (8.0 mm × 8.0 mm), and the measurement results indicate good attenuation performance with the controllable transmission zero.
