Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR IMPROVING PERFORMANCE OF RFID TAGS
Abstract:
Disclosed herein are RFID tags. In one exemplary embodiment, the RFID tag includes an RFID chip; a first antenna segment secured to the RFID chip; a second antenna segment secured to the RFID chip; and a wire segment secured on a first end to the first antenna segment and secured on a second end to the second antenna segment. Generally, the wire segment spans a mounting position of the RFID chip. In one embodiment, the wire segment is secured to the first antenna segment and the second antenna segment with ohmic contacts. The ohmic contacts can be formed by a conductive adhesive, soldering, or welding. In another embodiment, the RFID tag further includes a first non-conductive material positioned between the first end of the wire segment and the first antenna segment, and a second non-conductive material positioned between the second end of the wire segment and the second antenna segment.
