abstract = {This paper presents an implemented calculator tool for the design of Edge/Parallel Coupled Microstrip Band Pass Filters (PCMBPF) that makes use of the MA TLAB software. This calculator allows estimating both the parameters required for the design of the PCMBPF and the electrical response which is obtained by means of the equivalent circuit of this type of filters. Based on the transmission line theory approach (TLTA), the calculator herein proposed is a good solution to simply obtain the design parameters of this type of filters given that all formulas required for the PCMBPF design are programmed using close-form mathematic expressions and the coupling matrix concept. In order to validate our calculator performance, we implemented the proposed filter in a commercial electromagnetic simulator CST MWs that considers a set of electromagnetic effects, and accurately determine the final filter design. Secondly, we compared these simulation outcomes with the measurement results, achieving a reasonable agreement.},
