I'm trying to design a Low-Pass transmission line stub filter, and I have a few question regarding it.
I'm rather new to RF-circuit design, so please bear with me.
If my desired specs include the pass-frequencies and the block-frequencies, does that let me figure out a suitable \$N\$ somehow (does bigger \$N\$ make the slope more steep? How is this determined?)
How do I go about limiting the size of the reflection coefficient, or what counts as \$Z_S\$ in the circuit?
Any useful literature I should dive into in the topic of designing a transmission line stub filter and figuring out the details?
Thanks in advance.
Also, how should I consider the desired attenuation decibel amounts at pass/stop frequencies?
