A target application for plastic RFID tags is Electronic Product Coding (EPC). The EPC-specifications set some demanding requirements for RFID tags. In this work, we review the work that has been done to fulfill some of these specifications. We describe a complete 64-bit RFID tag that is inductively-coupled at a base carrier frequency of 13.56 MHz, and transmits data at rates below 1 kb/s. Next, we demonstrate 8-bit RFID transponder chips having data rates of 50 kb/s, an important milestone for organic RFID tags in view of EPC specifications.
