This paper presents a method to control on single real-frequency transmission zeros (TZs) position in the reject band for third-order waveguide band pass filter (BPF). The external couplings are achieved by using a coaxial probes while the internal couplings are achieved by using short-circuit metallic posts. The TZs appear are generated by forming a triplet, i.e., multipath cancellation between non-adjacent resonators. The dimensions of the metal post between non-adjacent resonators are adjusted to control the position of TZs in the rejection band. A third order waveguide generalized Chebyshev BPF is simulated with HFSS at a center frequency of 28 GHz to validate the design method. The simulated insertion loss is 0.05 dB and the bandwidth (BW) is 500MHz. The simulation demonstrates the compatibility of the presented filtering structure with 5G applications.
