A novel band-pass filter topology in waveguide technology is presented in this work. The proposed filter design is based on a periodic structure that uses modified sections of a single-ridge waveguide (SRW) as the unit cell to produce the desired frequency response. Two-step height profiles are included in the central part of the SRW, which provide useful parameters to yield a simple design method to achieve the required filtering characteristics. The suggested topology and design process are used to achieve band-pass filter responses with different fractional bandwidth and rejection characteristics. A 54% fractional bandwidth band-pass filter centered at 5.4 GHz is implemented using low cost 3-D additive manufacturing techniques, which allow fast prototyping and the fabrication of complex geometries. Experimental measurements are in agreement with the expected simulated response of the designed band-pass filter.
