In this paper, a microstrip lowpass filter using hairpin structure and Chip-Capacitor is proposed. Firstly, the LPF with one hairpin element is briefly designed and optimized with LC prototype structure using circuit simulator. With the capacitor loaded the proposed LPF illustrates the sharp attenuation performance near the cut-off frequency and the wideband rejection characteristics. Then, in order to improve the stopband attenuation the three-hairpin LPF is studied. By optimazing its design the attenuation is improved by 32dB.
