This paper presents an ultra-wideband bandpass filter (UWB BPF) using quarter-wavelength inverter-lines at both sides of a three-pole interdigital filter. The relations between the impedances of the inverter-line with the load and those of the interdigital filter connected to the inverter-line were studied. From these, the design procedures for the impedance matching at the UWB passband edges were shown. Then the designed BPF from the above results showed that the bandwidth was 24% wider than that of the sole interdigital filter by additional two conjugate matching poles. The fabricated BPF achieved the performances of the required passband by the five matching poles.
