In this paper, we designed and fabricated a ultra-wideband(UWB) bandpass filter with a good performance of a stopband, and a notched band in passband. The transformed equivalent circuit of the highpass filter was realized by distributed element. A wide-passband with 3-dB fractional bandwidth of more than 100 % was achieved by using optimum response of the HPF. For improving lower and upper stopband characteristic, a cross coupling between feed lines was employed, which was analyzed by desegmentation technique. In order to reject interference of Wireless LAN and Hyper LAN(5.15~5.825 GHz), the narrow notched(rejection) band was realized by a spurline. The fabricated BPF indicated the passband from 3.1 to 10.55 GHz and the flat group delay of less than 0.94 ns over the entire passband except the rejection band. The filter shown sharp attenuation both inside and outside the band and notched band from 5.2 to 6.12 GHz.
