In this paper, a miniaturized bandpass filter with controllable harmonic by using split impedance resonators is proposed. The proposed split impedance resonator is based on the theories of the basic parallel impedance formula and stepped Impedance resonators (SIRs). In this way, the split impedance resonator can be effectively designed to obtain good coupling for reducing the insertion loss. Furthermore, a miniaturized bandpass filter with controllable spurious frequency is proposed. The proposed bandpass filter not only has good passband characteristics but also obtains miniaturization around 21.87% versus the traditional SIR bandpass filters.
