Microstrip Filter

Calculate the S-parameters of a simple microstrip notch filter. Use different solvers and compare the results.

The S-parameter results are compared for the following solvers:
  • Finite substrate with FEM method.
  • Finite substrate with SEP method.
  • Infinite substrate with planar mutilayer substrate (Green's functions).
