© 2019 IEEE. This paper presents based on flexible coupling schemes using multiple quarter-wavelength resonators. Microstrip-to-slotline transitions were are used to provide external coupling to the filters. A dual-mode and tri-mode filter are designed. For the dual-mode design, a pair of quarter-wavelength resonators is used with a gap between them providing a suitable coupling coefficient. For the tri-band design, an additional resonator is coupled to the previous quarter-wavelength resonators, leading to a three-pole response within the passband. A microstrip line with a grounded resistor is added at the middle point of two output ports, leading to excellent output matching and isolation between output ports. Two design examples with dual-mode and tri-mode responses are realized with the verification using full-wave simulations.
