Abstract : A millimeter wave suspended substrate multiplexer is disclosed which is comprised of a plurality of hybrid-filter-hybrid channel dropping sections. The components of the multiplexer are enclosed in a metallic housing forming a cavity surrounding the multiplexer components. Each of the hybrid-filter-hybrid sections is comprised of first and second 90 deg hybrid couplers which are connected by a pair of identical bandpass filters. Spurious waveguide energy propagation modes which would otherwise be generated in the cavity surrounding the 90 deg suspended hybrid couplers are eliminated by the use of a plurality of mode suppression pins extending between the top and bottom portions of the metallic housing and passing through the branch lines of the couplers.
