A microstrip cross-coupled filter with two independently controllable transmission zeros on upper stopband is presented. The initial filter structure is a conventional Chebyshev-response parallel-coupled filter that can be easily realized by the analytical method. The newly proposed coupling/shielding lines can effectively control the cross and main couplings without changing the original filter layout. This approach allows a designer to eliminate the tedious segmentation method, which is
