I’m working on a project where we’re using UHF-RFID tags to improve the production process at the company where I work.
I was wondering if there’re any ideas about using UHF-RFID tags for implants? Those tags have some amazing properties like long range readability. The best is that some of those tags are able to use near field antennas. This means that any simple design of conductive material in the tags vicinity will become the antenna.
A good candidate for an implant would be the IM5-PK2525 from Hitachi. It contains the Monza 5 chip from IMPINJ and has an integrated antenna which don’t require any additional antenna designs. The reading range is about 20mm depending on the reader antenna.
the chip size is 2.5mm x 2.5mm x 0.4mm
Here’re some examples for a booster antenna design:
the line is about 70mm long and made with conductive ink
This booster antenna designs would give a reading range of up to 1 meter.
@amal Could you produce an implant with the IM5-PK2525 chips for testing? Also, the latest chip from Hitachi is the UC7-PK2020B which contains the NXP UCODE 7 IC and it’s only 2mm x 2mm x 1mm with integrated antenna. Is there a way to turn those into an implant?
