In this paper, the authors presented the design of a high performance diplexer for applications of Global Positioning System (GPS) at 1.575GHz and Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) at 2.4GHz, simultaneously. Two BandPass Filters (BPFs) using the modified Stepped-Impedance Resonators (SIRs) operated at 1.575GHz and 2.4GHz are the main blocks for the proposed diplexer. By discussing and analyzing the admittance of the even and odd modes, the transmission zero of the modified SIR can be found and the location of the transmission zero can be precisely predicted, thus having a wide and deep stopband for the BPFs, useful for the high performance diplexer.
