Quarter Mode Substrate Integrated Waveguide, Half Mode Substrate Integrated Waveguide, QMSIW Cavity, QMSIW Filter


In this paper, a novel Quarter Mode Substrate Integrated Waveguide (QMSIW) cavity filter is presented. A prototype at 5GHz for the proposed filter has been simulated using CST Microwave Studio, and fabricated using standard Printed Circuit Board (PCB) process. The fabricated filter has been measured using a Vector Network Analyzer (VNA). The measurement results are compared with the simulation results, good agreement is observed between simulation and measurement results concerning the pass band, the selectivity and the out-of-band rejection.
