Abstract

This paper discusses the main design challenges of implantable UHF RFID antennas in lossy environments. A novel cylindrical implantable antenna concept is presented. The proposed antenna shows good performance inside lossy environments, like a human body. The RFID tag is able to work in a range up to 3 m for implantation depths in the range of 1 - 2.5 cm. A basic demonstrator with RFID integrated circuit (IC) was manufactured and tested in order to prove the proposed design strategy.
