In this paper, a new formulation of equal-length three-section open stubs having two zeros located on the unit circle and one zero at z=-1 (θ=π) in the Z-plane is presented. In particular, new filter configurations consisting of equal-length two-section open stubs, cascade lines, open stubs, and three-section open stubs are employed to emulate the discrete-time filters. To examine the validity of our formulation, we realized two discrete-time Chebyshev type II low-pass filters in the form of microstrip lines. The frequency responses of these two filters are measured to validate this new formulation.
