We propose the new and highly accurate design theory of the high Tc superconducting (HTS) miniaturized coplanar waveguide (CPW) bandpass filters (BPFs) with highly packed meanderlines. BPFs are designed using the external quality factor (Qe) and coupling constant (k) (Q-k method). These parameters are estimated from the transmission coefficient obtained by the 2.5-dimensional electromagnetic field simulator. Moreover, the Q-k method is compared with the J-b method (designed using admittance inverter and susceptance slope parameter) presented previously; in this way we confirmed that the Q-k method has higher accuracy than the J-b method. We realized the design of a the highly packed meanderline CPW BPF (5 pole, center frequency = 2 GHz, fractional band width = 15 MHz, ripple = 0.1 dB) in a 3.5 mm 8 mm substrate.
