Improving microstrip filters with gap waveguide packaging
Paper in proceedings, 2011

A study is presented of the performance of microstrip filters packaged with Perfect Magnetic Conductor (PMC) and realization of the PMC using a lid of nails. A 3rd order parallel coupled-line bandpass filter is designed and packaged with a lid of nails at the Ku-band. The study shows the PMC packaging technique is very efficient in improving the filter characteristics including the insertion loss in the bandpass region.
