AbstractThis study presents an original asymmetric stepped-impedance resonator filter combined with meander coupled-line structures and enabling the realisation of finite transmission zeros (TZs) and the implementation of multi-band bandpass filters. The meander coupled sections (MCSs) tune the TZs and resonant frequencies: with higher-order spurious frequencies cancelled by the TZs, a single wideband with wide stopband from 1.18 to 1.84 GHz is possible. Furthermore, by positioning the finite TZs between the high-order spurious frequencies and adjusting the coupling strength between resonators, a quint-wideband filter can be realised, with centre frequencies of 1.19, 4.29, 5.43, 6.97, 9.9 GHz and fractional bandwidths of 31.9, 15.4, 15.8, 4.3, 39.2%, respectively. More importantly, two filters with single/quad-wideband performance can be realised by tuning the parameters of the MCS, and therefore they can be designed separately by using only one original structure. The triple-wideband filter is realised with the help of the asymmetric parallel uncoupled microstrip section. These filter structures enjoy the advantage of single/multi-band versatility, structure reusability and simplicity. The good in-band and out-of-band performance, low loss and simple structure of the proposed single/tri/quint-wideband filters make them very promising for applications in future multi-standard wireless communication.

FIR implementation on FPGA: investigate the FIR order on SDA and PDA algorithmsMigdadi, Hassan S.O.; Abd-Alhameed, Raed A.; Obeidat, Huthaifa A.N.; Noras, James M.; Qaralleh, E.A.A.; Ngala, Mohammad J. (2015)Finite impulse response (FIR) digital filters are extensively used due to their key role in various digital signal processing (DSP) applications. Several attempts have been made to develop hardware realization of FIR filters characterized by implementation complexity, precision and high speed. Field Programmable Gate Array is a reconfigurable realization of FIR filters. Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are on the verge of revolutionizing digital signal processing. Many front-end digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms, such as FFTs, FIR or IIR filters, are now most often realized by FPGAs. Modern FPGA families provide DSP arithmetic support with fast-carry chains that are used to implement multiply-accumulates (MACs) at high speed, with low overhead and low costs. In this paper, distributed arithmetic (DA) realization of FIR filter as serial and parallel are discussed in terms of hardware cost and resource utilization.
A novel multi-standard dual-wide band polygon SLSIR filterTu, Yuxiang X.; Ali, Ammar H.; Elmegri, Fauzi; Abousitta, M.; Abd-Alhameed, Raed A.; Hussaini, Abubakar S.; Elfergani, Issa T.; Rodriguez, Jonathan; Atiah, A.S. (2015)A novel multi-standard dual-wide band filter with a compact size of only 8.8 mm by 16.8mm is designed and developed for transceiver devices. The proposed filter has a fundamental bandwidth of 1.6GHz with fractional bandwidth (FBW) of 29.7% centered at the 5.4GHz band, and second bandwidth of 300.0MHz with FBW of 3.6% centered at the 8.15GHz band. The basic dual-wide bandwidth is attributed to the interaction of the novel modified polygon pair and upper stub loaded stepped impedance resonator. Moreover, the added down stub loaded stepped impedance resonator (SLSIR) further enhances the pass band performance by widening the bandwidth and optimizing reflection coefficient performance considerably. To validate the proposed ideas, the multi-standard filter is designed and simulated by Ansoft HFSS software. The simulated results agree well with the theory predictions. The featured broad bandwidths over two frequency bands and the miniaturized size of the proposed filter make it very promising for applications in future multi-standard wireless communication.
Recent Progress in the Design of 4G/5G Reconfigurable FiltersAl-Yasir, Yasir I.A.; Ojaroudi Parchin, Naser; Abd-Alhameed, Raed A.; Abdulkhaleq, Ahmed M.; Noras, James M. (2019-01-20)Currently, several microwave filter designs contend for use in wireless communications. Among various microstrip filter designs, the reconfigurable planar filter presents more advantages and better prospects for communication applications, being compact in size, light-weight and cost-effective. Tuneable microwave filters can reduce the number of switches between electronic components. This paper presents a review of recent reconfigurable microwave filter designs, specifically on current advances in tuneable filters that involve high-quality factor resonator filters to control frequency, bandwidth and selectivity. The most important materials required for this field are also highlighted and surveyed. In addition, the main references for several types of tuneable microstrip filters are reported, especially related to new design technologies. Topics surveyed include microwave and millimetre wave designs for 4G and 5G applications, which use varactors and MEMSs technologies.
