Quad, imec, Agfa and TNO printed RFID tag

Quad Industries, Agfa, imec and TNO announced today (June 6, 2017) that they have demonstrated a plastic 12-bit RFID tag and read-out system with screen-printed circuitry. The system integrates, for the first time, a screen-printed antenna and printed touch-based user interface, allowing implementation of the reader on curved surfaces. The demonstrator has been designed for badge security applications, but holds promises for many other applications, including smart packages, wearables and interactive games.

Part of this work has been carried out in the SIM project Met@link, part of the SOPPOM program

Kris Myny from imec also received the SIM poster award yesterday for his work on the printed conductive structures.
