The first backward diplexer for K-band substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) operation is presented. The advantage of this compact diplexer is having input and two output port interfaces at the same side of the substrate, which advances the applications of SIWs to more complex feed system assemblies. The diplexer has two bands at 20 and 21 GHz. The bandwidth of each band is 0.4 GHz, which gives 2 and 1.9% bandwidth at lower and higher bands, respectively. The diplexer is designed and analysed
