Abstract

Many mobile communication systems require bandpass filter with sharp skirt characteristics and consequently a filter was formed by more order. It needs to improve flatness in passband. In this paper, amplitude equalizer was used to improve the flatness of passband. We modified Chebyshev prototype filter by use of network synthesis and computed the prototype elements for Shaping filter. We designed and realized a 13-order combline bandpass filter and 4-order amplitude equalizer with coaxial dielectric resonators at WiBro band. The measured results show $\pm$0.82 dB amplitude difference in passband, 6 dB improved flatness.
