In this paper, an inverse S-shaped slotted ground structure (S-SGS) is proposed and analyzed. The S-SGS generates dual attenuation poles that can be easily controlled by its structure parameters. The equivalent circuit of the S-SGS consists of lumped elements that can be extracted from the measured S parameters. Moreover, several S-SGS cells are applied to form a miniaturized lowpass filter (LPF), which has a smaller area and a wider stopband in comparison to previous works.
