SAG develops miniaturized NFC tags readable from within metal

Miniaturization is a new focus earning NFC’s attention!

In the past few years, NFC technology has emerged in multiple business territories thanks to its promotional activities and user-friendly applications that make life more convenient. In addition to the areas it was already well known, NFC has recently entered the industry sector as well. We have seen system integrators, chip suppliers, and end users all collaborating to address varying challenges.

Miniaturization is another new focus earning NFC’s attention. With the help of antenna design capability and the newly-introduced micro injection process, SAG has developed two miniaturized tags – the 6 mm Plug Tag and the M10 Screw Tag.

The 6 mm Plug Tag measures D6 x H4 mm and has an NFC chip inside (NXP ICode SLIX; NFC Type 5 compliant).

This tag can be both placed and read from within metal by NFC-enabled phones, which means there’s no need for inductive couplers and it costs less for users to take advantage of applications such as asset management and process control. In addition, the 6 mm Plug Tag is the smallest tag in our metal tag series and features advantages such as superior environmental resistability.

The M10 Screw Tag, empowered by Fujitsu MB89R118 technology, resembles a metric bolt (M10 x 1.5mm).

This tag is designed to be screwed into a metallic object (tapped with thread) and read from inside metal, which facilitates factory automation and process control.

SAG has been dedicated to creating RFID transponders for various scenarios. Our miniaturized tags fit size-constrained items and features reading from inside metal. We are eager to hear about more applications to fuel our enthusiasm as a transponder solution provider.
