In this study, a new method of design for dual band matching network is presented. A transformer-less Band Pass (BP) prototype matching network is synthesized with well-known Simplified Real Frequency Technique (SRFT) via cascaded combination of Low Pass (LP) and High Pass (HP) sections and optimized under LP to BP frequency transformation to create dual band response. Scattering parameters based descriptive functions of transformer-less BP prototype network is obtained. Dual band response is derived via frequency mapping on the produced BP prototype network. The new method combines several advantages both in design and realization step. The application of this method is discussed with sequential transformation based approach. A dual band matching network design for a PIFA antenna is presented. By using this method dual band characteristic is derived with only one step application of frequency mapping which let use to have more practical realizations.
