With today’s sophisticated
supply chain, tracking product has become an important part of each company’s
responsibility. The ability to track a piece of equipment from the production
process through the distribution channel to the end user with accuracy has
become easier with the use of RFID.
Murata’s MAGICSTRAP® is the
latest in UHF RFID chip development, designed to be placed on the printed
circuit board (PCB). The integrated module eliminates many of the frustrations
previously encountered by design engineers looking to incorporate RFID into
By following some basic and
simple guidelines, the antenna is designed into the PCB’s ground plane. This
represents a permanent and cost effective antenna solution. Placement of
MAGICSTRAP® is done using any commercial pick and place equipment. Once
mounted, information can be stored and retrieved on MAGICSTRAP® using any EPC
global compatible UHF Reader/Writer.
