This paper proposes compact and planar substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) based filters for single and triple band operations using two quarter-mode SIW (QMSIW) cavities. Two miniaturized QMSIW cavity resonators (QMSIWCRs) are capacitively coupled. Miniaturization in the QMSIWCR is achieved by adding an arc-shaped slot and a rectangular openended stub at the closed-end of the QMSIWCR. In the triple band bandpass filter (BPF), a capacitor is added to the openended side of the stub to enhance impedance matching at the higher modes. It has the centre frequencies of 2.1, 3.98 and 6.6 GHz with an insertion losses (ILs) of 0.93, 0.98, and 1.2 dB at the lower, middle and upper passband, respectively. Moreover, the measured fractional bandwidths (FBWs) are 16.97, 8.77, and 8.42% at the lower, middle and upper passband, respectively. Two rectangular slots are etched on the upper layer of the cavity to suppress the second mode and reduce coupling of the third mode; this realizes a single-band filter with an improved upper stopband response. It has the centre frequency of 2.1 GHz with a wide upper stop-band response, having a rejection level of 20 dB up to 3.19fc. The operation of filter is additionally discussed and verified by means of a lumped element equivalent circuit model and experimental results. The proposed filters are suitable for integration with other planar radio-frequency (RF) components due to their compact sizes, low ILs, planar structures, multiple transmission zeros (TZs) and adequate bandwidths.
