This paper presents a design procedure of multilayer single-input/single-output dual-band filters of small size fabricated in high-permittivity LTCC (Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramic) substrates. The present dual-band filter, with pass bands of 950 MHz and 1.9 GHz, consists of two single-band filters each one of which has a matching circuit for controlling the input impedance in the pass band of the counterpart. Discussed first in this paper is a dual-band filter that has the matching circuit connected to the single-band filters externally. Then, a dual-band filter with the matching circuit embedded in its body is investigated together with metallization patterns of the matching elements. Presented finally is a very small single-input/single-output dual-band filter suitable for dual-band wireless communication systems.
