Abstract

We investigate the strain reliability of passive UHF RFID tags based on antennas printed on two structurally dissimilar textiles. The performance of the tags under strain and during repeated stretching cycles is evaluated through wireless measurements. Initially, both tags achieve read ranges of 9.5 meters and retain high readable ranges under notable, 20%, strain. Our results from a cyclic strain test evidence that the fabric substrate structure and elasticity play an important role in the reliability and recovery of printed thick-film conductors.
