Design of 1cm2 coils for HF RFID instruments tracking with detection range improvement

Abstract : This paper concerns an application of magnetic coupling RFID technology at 13.56 MHz (HF band) for tracking devices such as instruments. The tag size is defined to be ergonomically small compared to the hand, and fixed inside a maximum surface of 1 cm 2. The case of multiple detections is considered, and consequently the reader surface of control is considered wide enough to include several instruments at the same time during a logistic control process. The use of such a small RFID tag is almost impossible using a large reader loop of 15×30 cm 2, as chosen for the tests. The key idea of the paper is then the addition of a resonator that enables to create the mandatory physical link by means of magnetic coupling between the tag coil and the resonator coil and between the resonator coil and the reader loop. Finally the detection range is highly improved by the presence of this resonator and results demonstrate that it is possible to detect these small RFID “1 by 1 cm 2 tags” at a distance of 1.5 cm to 3 cm, depending on their orientations.
