Coupling effects between resonators on a laminated Band Elimination Filter (BEF) is studied. The coupling degrades the filter attenuation performance. A new equivalent circuit of coupled-line BEF with loaded capacitors is investigated. The performance is simulated and the improvement by staggered resonators is confirmed. An experimental filter made of Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramics (LTCC) is constructed. It shows good performance.
