A new microstrip triplexer with a compact size of 0.007 λ2g is proposed in this work, where designing a microstrip triplexer with a size less than 0.01 λ2g is a big challenge. In addition to the compact size, it shows a high performance i.e. its channels are wide with low insertion losses. Moreover, the channels are flat with three low group delays (GDs) of 0.65, 0.95 and 1.17 ns, while most of the previously reported triplexers have not considered this important parameter. The proposed resonator is mathematically analyzed to find a method to get rid of harmonics and tune the resonance frequency. Meanwhile, the 1st , 2nd , 3rd and 4th harmonics are suppressed above the first channel. The designed triplexer is suitable for 5G mid-band applications. The proposed triplexer is exactly fabricated and then measured to confirm the designing method and simulation results. The obtained results show that all the simulation, mathematical analysis and experimental results are in good agreement. Therefore, the proposed triplexer can be easily used in designing high-performance RF communication systems.
