A new compact bandpass filter based on two meandered parallel-coupled lines of different lengths in shunt is presented, using the signal-interference technique, this filter obtains a low insertion loss and sharp rejection. A set of analytical formulas and guidelines for the design of the bandpass filter are provided in two theoretical analysis methods. According to the number of attenuation poles of the reflection coefficients in the passband, it can be summed up two types of filters. To validated this topology, two wideband bandpass filters centered at 3 GHz are built to verify the theoretical prediction, the measured frequency response of the filter agrees excellently with the predicted result.
