The miniaturization of ring band-pass filters by employing high-permittivity ceramic substrates (with respective dielectric constants of 9.7 and 23.5) are investigated. Microwave dielectric ceramics with high-permittivity are commonly applied in several microwave communication components. With the advantages of compact size, highpermittivity ceramics can be used as the substrate for band-pass filters. Moreover, the fundamental characteristics of newly developed compact ring resonators have also been described and applied to the design of band-pass filters. In this article, the designed ring resonators structures are simulated using an HFSS simulator. The responses of the fabricated band-pass filters using Al2O3 (εr = 9.7, tanδ = 0.0001) and 0.875Mg 0.95Zn0.05TiO3-0.125Ca0.8Sm 0.4/3TiO3 (εr = 23.5, tanδ = 0.000083) ceramic substrates are designed at the center frequency of 2.4 GHz. This compact size, low loss band-pass filter should be useful in many wireless communication systems.
