Abstract

We outline the possibilities of 3D direct write dispensing in the manufacturing of UHF RFID tags on textile materials and present considerations regarding the process parameters to achieve high-performance tags when the antenna is deposited directly on the rough and porous textile material. We also show that it is possible to use the dispensing to form the antenna-microchip connection using conductive ink only in order to simplify the manufacturing process. Our measurement results confirm that the manufactured textile-based RFID tags achieve high performance with the attainable read ranges of 8.5-to-11 meters in air.
