Imec has built NFC and RFID tags which are made with plastic electronics technology. These tags can be produced through low cost large-area manufacturing processes, and opens up several new possibilities for NFC and RFID deployments.
Thanks to the nature of thin-film plastics, the new tags can be made much thinner and they are mechanically very robust.
Imec’s thin-film technology is compliant with the standards that were set originally by silicon, which makes the technology now fully compatible with IoT.
