This paper describes newly developed miniaturized stepped impedance resonators with a double coaxial structure (DC-SIR's) and their application to bandpass filters. The new DC-SIR's using dielectric material are devised for more compact and lower frequency bandpass filters. Fundamental characteristics such as resonance properties and unloaded-Q make it clear that DC-SIR's have attractive features that miniaturization can be achieved without Q-factor degradation. Trial 400 MHz bandpass filters incorporating DC-SIR's are also made. Experimental results of bandpass filters proved that DC-SIR's are applicable to lower frequency band radio equipment and able to contribute to the expansion of applicable frequency ranges of dielectric coaxial resonators.
