I am current looking for the general design guide line for the reentrant cavity filter. I am new and would like to know what is the steps that I need to follow for designing such a filter.
Any comments/suggestion/feedback is welcomed. Thanks in advance.

Designing, testing and even manufacturing of RF, Microwave and Sub-Millimeter filters circuit takes experience and hard work. There are many approaches and tradeoffs when it comes to passive filters. My advice to you is to invest lot of time studying (compare many books and authors’ filters design, approach and tradeoffs), getting familiar with different type of equipment and tools (Network and Spectrum Analyzers, Signal Generators, Power Meters, Signal Attenuators, Critical Cable tool, Simulation Software…etc – you can buy used (software must be new and with option for optimization) ones at surplus but, make sure they work well or rent some). By employing this method you will be unable to make rapid progress in building filters. Remember, no filter is good for use until tested and it worked according to desired specifications (overkill specs results to begin is a real good approach). Please, be aware that in these modern days, mixed signals (analog/digital) are often required and/or digital signals alone for transmission and receiving in wireless communications applications. Therefore, one must work with reliable and accurate design tool (software) in order to get proper results. We have used good hand calculator in past and proved that software is the best way to go for any RF Engineer. I thought this might help you at beginning. Good luck!

Sincerely,
John Pereira

Hi John,

Thanks for your advise. I am currently having some background on ADS and HFSS, and would like to use this tool for the cavity design. My goal is to design a BPF, with 3.6 GHz center freq. I would like to know where and how should I start off? From LPF and convert to BPF or ??? Pls advise :?:

Camel,

Please, answer the following:
Are you doing R & D on this specific filter design? What is the filter application for? You could design this filter by using Waveguide (should it be for high power level…) or Distributed Element filter topologies. Why have you selected cavity filter?
I will be keen to help you design and build this filter. However, in order to do that, I will need to have complete electrical specifications. Mechanical B.O.M. (bill of material) I will advise. Due to it will take us lots of communication; I’d prefer to be contacted via email. Following are my emails: jgp882003@yahoo.com or jgp95@hotmail.com

Sincerely,
John Pereira

Camel,

Following are some information about Re-entrant Cavity! I personally haven’t design it, however, I thought these might help you.

Camel,

Due to you are doing design and build the Re-entrant cavity filter, this information below may be even better.
