Applying directly on the PCB like other SMT components, Murata Electronics’ LXMS31 Series MagicStrap tags provides coverage and impedance matching in the UHF band from 850 MHz to 965 MHz. The 3.2 mm × 1.6 mm × 0.7 mm components are inductively coupled to the antenna without electrical contact using glue or sticky tape, and protect against ESD over 10 kV. The EPCGlobal C1 G2-standardized tags allows individuals to monitor and take action to improve efficiency, and can still be read once production is complete since line of sight is not necessary with RFID technology. The devices offer memory capacity from 96 bits to 512 bits and readability from multiple angles and outside of the enclosure. Applications include product inventory control and supply chain management.
