An extended configuration of a stepped impedance comb-line filter is presented. The parallel stripline sections of stepped impedance resonators are coupled electromagnetically and a coupling capacitor is introduced. The creation of an attenuation pole near the passband was detailed. A design procedure for the two-pole extended filter is derived from an analysis using even-and odd-mode impedances. Experimental filters were constructed by ceramic lamination technique. They exhibited excellent performances suitable for portable telephones.
