In this paper, a folded stepped impedance resonator (SIR), modified by adding an inner quasi-lumped SIR stub, is used as a basis block for a new implementation of dual-band bandpass filters. The main advantage of the proposed filter is to make it possible to independently control the electrical features of the first and second bands. The behavior of the first band basically depends on the geometry of the outer folded SIR. The second band, however, is strongly influenced by the presence of the

The position of the tapped input and output lines can be Corresponding author: M. D. C. Velázquez-Ahumada (velazquez@us.es).
