Abstract : Stripline filters and the closely related microstrip filters are coupled transmission line networks which are fabricated using one of a number of printed circuit fabrication techniques. In order to understand the operation and parameters of stripline filters it is necessary to understand the fundamentals of single and coupled transmission line resonators. The fundamental properties of transmission line resonators are reviewed, and specific examples are given for typical stripline parameters. Basic relationships are given for the size, characteristic impedance, and Q of stripline resonators. In general it is found that stripline resonator Q will be limited by the ohmic losses in the conductors. The characteristics of the skin effect and the proximity effect which determine these losses are reviewed.
