A compact Ku-band bandpass filter (BPF) with wide passband, compact size and high selectively is presented. The presented BPF is composed of two quarter-wavelength resonators and a dual-mode resonator, resulting in a compact circuit size. The transmission zeros (TZs) located at the lower and upper stopband are achieved by the mixed electromagnetic (EM) coupling and dual-mode resonator, respectively, resulting in a high frequency selectively. The measured results show minimum in-band insertion

Also, the stopband suppression is greater than 28 dB from 5 to 10.3 GHz and 30 dB from 19.5 to 29.5 GHz. The effective circuit size of the filter is 8.43 × 2.28 mm 2 (0.63λ g × 0.17λ g , where λ g is the guide wavelength of 15.1 GHz).
