Abstract:

A compact 4-pole bandpass filter centered at 55 GHz with a 13.6 bandwidth is realized using an integrated three-dimensional microfabrication process. The filter has an almost exact match to the design simulations except for a shift in the center frequency that is less than 1.3. Measured insertion loss is 2.4-3.5 dB. The filter is very compact, measuring less than 0.86 mm by 1.9 mm by 0.3 mm. This filter clearly demonstrates the potential of three-dimensional microfabrication processes for the realization of millimeter-wave filters.
