Abstract

This paper presents a platform tolerant ultra-high radio frequency identification (UHF RFID) tag design for hard to tag supply chain items such as large metal and wooden containers. The proposed design consists is backed by multi-resonant surface carefully designed using characteristics mode analysis. As a result, this tag design features a long read range and covers most of UHF RFID frequency bands. The evaluation of the read range associated with fabricated prototype of proposed tag configuration is done through turn on power measurements using Tagformance Pro setup. A variety of subjects with different physical constitutions such as metal, wood and glass are considered in order to demonstrate the robustness of our solution. The proposed tag offers a relatively longer reader range of 12.5 m after mounting on piece of metal, wood and glass materials. Therefore, this tag design is suitable candidate for supply chain visibility and cargo monitoring.
