      The goal Cover the fundamentals of microwave filter design. Introduce electric network synthesis. Provide essentials for designing standard microwave filters, such as stepped-impedance, commensurate, end-coupled, parallel-coupled, interdigital, comb-line, and hairpin-line filters.
      The outcome Understand basic filter concepts and design stages. Identify filter specifications and technological requirements. Design standard microwave filters by synthesis, tuning and optimization. Verify the filter design by a circuit-level filter simulation.
