Low Cost Flexible NFC Chip Inlays With Printed Antennas (Graphene & 2D Materials Europe 2020)

Mr Martin Scattergood, Managing Director
SES RFID Solutions GmbH

Presentation Summary

SES RFID Solutions and AUO of Taiwan have developed a 13micron plastic NFC chip and a process to produce RFID paper inlays without using thermo-plastic substrates. Typically antennas for RFID inlays are etched or printed on a PET sheet. This paper describes the process for printing a conductive antenna, including Graphene, on paper with a connection to the chip. The low chip profile and the process ensures a thin, flexible and flat inlay. Applications envisaged include printed smart packaging, food labelling, single use ticketing and trading cards.
