The automated and unattended design of balanced microstrip wideband bandpass filters by means of aggressive space mapping (ASM) optimization is reported in this paper. The proposed filters are based on multisection mirrored stepped impedance resonators (SIRs) coupled through quarter-wavelength transmission lines, acting as admittance inverters.
