This letter presents a 60-GHz ultracompact on-chip bandpass filter (BPF). The designed filter is based on a unique structure, which consists of two overlapped broadside-coupled open-loop resonators, achieving a high level of miniaturization. Moreover, each resonator is loaded by a metal-insulator-metal capacitor to get further miniaturization. Defected ground structure pattern is constructed under the filter structure to enhance the insertion loss (IL). This BPF is designed and fabricated using a standard 0.18- μ complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor technology for millimeter-wave applications. The fabricated BPF chip size is 240 × 225-μ 2 including pads. The measured results agree well with the simulation ones and show that the BPF has an IL of 3.3 dB at 59.5-GHz center frequency, and a bandwidth of 12.9 GHz.
