A Compact Folded RFID Tag Antenna with Nested Deformable Rings for Two-Side Anti-Metal Application
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 125, 191-200, 2022
Abstract
A novel compact two-side anti-metal tag antenna for radio frequency identification (RFID) applications is proposed in this paper. The proposed tag antenna is composed by three aluminum patches separated by two layers of foam substrates. Particularly, the middle patch of the antenna is designed as three nested deformable rings for the miniaturization of antenna and realizes better power transmission coefficient (PTC) between the antenna and tag microchip. The antenna operates at the center frequency of 915 MHz and maintains a compact size of 35 mm × 22 mm × 2.15 mm (0.1068λ0 × 0.0671λ0 × 0.0066λ0). When the front or back side of the tag antenna is mounted on a large background metallic plate and tested with an effective-isotropic-radiated-power (EIRP) of 4 W, the antenna can achieve the maximum read distances of 6.23 m or 6.08 m. The tag antenna shows various advantages, including small size, low profile, and good antenna performance. Most importantly, the proposed tag antenna has two-side anti-metal property compared to a traditional single-side anti-metal antenna, which fulfills the emerging demands in the industrial internet of things field.
