Murata Launches One of the World's Smallest HF-band RFID Tags
Press release date: November 1, 2012
Hoofddorp, Netherlands: Murata today announced one of the world’s smallest HF-band RFID tags. Operating in the 13.56 MHz band also used by contactless IC cards, the LXMS33HCNG-134 tag measures just 3.2 x 3.2 x 0.7 mm. Compliant with ISO 15693 standard, the tag can be used with any reader / writer that conforms to the same standard. The tag is suitable for use in most operating environments including high temperature and high humidity so it suits a wide range of appliance and object tracking, certification and authentication applications.
Normally, an RFID device requires an antenna and the IC tag and due to the frequencies involved the antenna tends to become extremely large. However, by applying multi-layer circuit board and high-frequency module techniques, Murata has been able to incorporate the antenna within the ceramic substrate. Using this approach, the LXMS33HCNG tag is extremely resistant to environmental conditional and is highly stable in operation. Read range, when used with a 200 mW reader/writer is typically 15 mm.
