Abstract

Problem statement: The expansion of RF, microwave and millimeter devices has revolutionized today’s ommunication and sensor systems. Low-cost, high-performance and mass producible millimeter wave technologies are vital for commercial broadband systems. Challenging issues are commonly faced in the design of low-loss integrated circuits for example high-Q band pass filter, which the planar technique is fundamentally limited in performance. Approach: In this study, we present a design of a nonradiative dielectric waveguide band pass filter based on hybrid architecture of micro strip line and non-radiative dielectric waveguide. Results: The simulation with High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) three dimensional analyses is presented. Conclusion: The non radiative dielectric resolves most of the drawbacks of dielectric waveguide in connection with the radiation loss.
