AbstractAn analytical procedure is presented for the synthesis of generalized multi-band filters. The procedure is applicable to both symmetric and asymmetric frequency responses and effective for any number of passbands and stopbands. An optimum equal-ripple performance is obtained in each passband and stopband. Prescribed real or complex transmission zeros can also be employed in the multi-band filtering function.
