26 GHz bandpass filter and duplexer using TM11δ rectangular-mode dielectric cavity resonators are proposed. These have a configuration compact and suitable for mounting on circuit boards. The resonators consisting of the Ba(Mg,Ta)O3 ceramic material showed a high quality factor value of 2600, which is roughly comparable to that of conventional E-plane waveguide filters. The dielectric losses of the ceramic material were experimentally evaluated from the viewpoint of the high frequency operation and the dielectric loss tangent of 7.410-5 was observed at 20 GHz. A three-stage Tchebyscheff bandpass filter with 0.4% relative bandwidth was fabricated and the passband insertion loss was 1.7 dB. A duplexer designed with two TM11δ mode filters and a microstrip T-junction is also presented.
