Abstract

This article suggests a simple and new miniaturized antenna for radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags in the European and Moroccan UHF band (866–869 MHz). Our structure consists of a meandering dipole, L-shaped radiators and a changed T-Match network. The meander technique was applied to decrease the antenna size; using this method, the size of our structure has been reduced to 68% compared to the classical UHF dipole. L-shaped radiators and a modified T-matching approach are also used to easily match the antenna input impedance to that of the chip to maximize power transfer. The size of our antenna is 50 x 22 mm2, it has been designed on a single-sided FR-4 substrate with a thickness of 0.8 mm for a relative permittivity, Ɛr of 4.4. For our design, we chose the Higgs 4 IC chip (manufactured by Alien Technology, USA) which has an impedance of 20.5-j191 Ω obtained at the centre frequency 867 MHz. The antenna performance was studied with respect to the impedance matching, realized gain, reflection coefficients and read range of the label. Therefore, the proposed design achieved a gain of 1.2 dB and a maximum reading range of 13.94 meters at 867 MHz.
