Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the marketplace, where price and performance requirements are challenging to meet, size has become an extremely important factor for cellular base stations. In current mobile communications bands, air-filled filters, which tend to be bulky, are used in base stations. In this contribution, the alternative use of a dielectric loaded combline filter is proposed in order to reduce the size of filters, and enhance their performance. An eighthorder canonical combline filter is designed with this in mind, for which measured results show improved performance.
