Abstract : This study presents a computer-aided design algorithm developed for a class of E-plane waveguide filters. The filter structure is composed of an integrated finline circuit in a waveguide. The circuit consists of several resonators separated by inductive strips. The analysis portion of the algorithm is based on the residue-calculus technique and a generalized scattering parameter method. It is mathematically exact and numerically very efficient because the convergence is guaranteed. Filters designed with this method are fabricated and tested at Ka-band. Good agreement with design is obtained. (Author)
