The increasing demand for limited space in crowded frequency spectrum is creating new challenges to RF frontend communication systems. High gain tunable antennas, tunable filter with high selectivity and isolation, large signal-to-noise ratio tunable low noise amplifiers are demanded. This thesis demonstrates novel tunable filter synthesis that may help in developing solutions for future RF frontend filter applications. The proposed coupling scheme enable the tuning of center frequency, order, response shape, bandwidth, and transmission zero spectral location. Also, this coupling scheme can be used to implement a field-programmable filter arrays (FPFAs) design.
