In this paper, improved dual-band filter design is studied. The dual-band resonators are composed of shunt open-and short-circuited stubs. In order to fulfill the requirements of dual-band inverters, a structure of stepped-impedance asymmetric coupled lines is proposed and its equivalent circuit is also derived. The dual-band filter is then designed based on this equivalent circuit. This type of filter can achieve relatively large practical passband center frequency ratios (in theory infinite), and it has more freedom of bandwidth ratio. The circuit size is also reduced. Detailed design procedure is presented and, finally, a filter example is given to validate the theoretical study.
