There have been significant advances in the synthesis and physical realization of microwave filter networks over the last three decades. This book provides a coherent and readable description of system requirements and constraints for microwave filters, fundamental considerations in the theory and design of microwave filters, up-to-date modern synthesis techniques with examples and technology considerations in the choice of hardware.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Provides by far the most comprehensive coverage available of powerful design techniques involving the use of coupling matrices. This is a book that every microwave filter design specialist will want to study and have on their bookshelf. It could also be the text for an advanced course on filter design." (IEEE Microwave Magazine, October 2008)
