This paper describes a continuous stepped impedance resonator (CSIR) bandpass filter using multilayer structure for suppression of spurious response at the twice of fundamental frequency and reducing size. The proposed bandpass filter using multilayer structure can produce transmission zeros by cross coupling and tapped I/O port. The measured responses indicated close correspondence with the design results.
