Abstract

Flexible electronics is an emerging field where the electronic components, antennas, and interconnections can endure significant mechanical stresses. This paper presents the fabrication and strain reliability evaluation of embroidered passive UHF RFID tags on 3D-printed (NinjaFlex) substrates. Based on the achieved results, these wireless platforms can withstand increases up to 14 % in length and remain functional. These preliminary results are promising, considering the current trend towards flexible and stretchable electronics structures.
