MAGICSTRAP RFID modules can be mounted using ordinary adhesive onto most conductive surfaces to act as the antenna. It therefore represents an easy-to-implement “Zero Defect” tag solution that requires only minimal knowledge of RF electronics, says Murata.
Murata’s MAGICSTRAP RFID module combines the latest in ceramic materials with a breakthrough in inductive coupling technology to produce a durable and stable module. Each module comprises Murata’s LTCC (low temperature co-fired ceramic) substrate, plus RF IC and packaging. The company’s multi-layer ceramic knowledge enabled the embedding of all necessary RF circuitry within the LTCC substrate.
A typical RFID system for a paper tag inlay would be an antenna pattern of metal foil with a MAGICSTRAP module mounted on it. Due to its inductive-coupledconnection technology, it can be mounted using ordinary non-conductive adhesive.
The module’s embedded wideband antenna matching circuit allows MAGICSTRAP to be readable over the 860-960MHz band at a distance of up to 5m. This means the same module can be used worldwide, saving cost and inventory for manufacturers. MAGICSTRAP complies with EPC Global Class 1 Gen 2.
