Improved Microstrip Filters Using PMC Packaging by Lid of Nails
Journal article, 2012

This paper shows that microstrip filters perform like textbook examples when packaged with perfect magnetic conductor (PMC). A PMC is made as a pin surface or lid of nails, and this is used to package a microstrip parallel coupled line bandpass filter. Our measurements confirm that parallel plate, cavity modes, and radiation are suppressed. This paper also includes a study of the reasons for a frequency shift between the ideal PMC packaged case and the realized case.
