Changing the world of logistics, with flexible and disposable plastic RFID and NFC chips.

Speaker: Kris Myny, Principal member of technical staff

Company/ Institute: imec

Event: 23rd workshop

Date: 19 June 2017


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.
