Ultra Thin, Flexible Plastic NFC Chip For Use In High Quality Printed Trading And Gaming Cards
Santa Clara Convention Center, CA, USA
Grand Ballroom G
09:40 - 10:00
Traditional printed trading cards for sport or fantasy games for collectors are bridging the gap between the real and digital worlds. This paper describes a newly developed ultra-thin, flexible NFC chip with a thickness of only 13microns. When connected with an antenna and inserted into a trading card, the flat topology has no negative impact on the card print quality and feel of the card, both essential items for maintaining collectable card value. The NFC function of the chip for contactless connection of the card content into the IoT world will be discussed.
