Keywords: waveguide filter, Chebyshev response, elliptical response, bandpass filter, lowpass filter

The study focuses on calculation data and techniques, as well as electromagnetic modeling results of bandpass and lowpass filters based on corrugated waveguides with Chebyshev and elliptical attenuation response. Corrugated filters with different attenuation responses and various number of resonators are compared, advantages of corrugated filters against other types of waveguide filters are specified, features of corrugated filters are defined and their preferred application fields are indicated
