Why would you build one when muRata and Epcos make every kind of SAW BPF under the sun for the UMTS bands?

What kind of filter do you want to design, LC, microstrip? Here are couple of good books.

Other design programs are here. You find something that helps.

Dear Tom,

The bandpass filter is used in 3G mobile transceiver, is it i am required to design a LC bandpass filter rather than microstrip type?

The book "Radio-Frequency Electronics'' by Jon B. Hagen suitable for me to learn how to design the bandpass filter? or the two books mentioned above are more suitable?

"shnt-bpf.mcd", what software is suitable to open the .mcd file?

Thanx for your reply, Tom. Thank you.
