Ultra-Small RFID Tag Outfits Medical Wearables

Murata Americas’ latest version of its ultra-small RAIN RFID Tag with integrated antenna – the LXMSJZNCMF-198 measures 1.25 mm x 1.25 mm x 0.55 mm and is capable of withstanding over-molding and embedded processes. Providing tracking and tracing capabilities to support product authentication and brand protection, the component’s size makes it suitable for use in eyewear, watches, wearables, and healthcare applications like test tube sample identification.


The tag integrates Impinj’s Monza R6 tag chip to create a solution that can be readily incorporated into an end-product. It delivers a typical read range of 10 mm using a 500 mW reader and supports the global UHF band from 865MHz to 928MHz. Also, the tag complies with the UHF RFID standard ISO18000-63 and EPC Global Gen2v2. Murata Electronics North America Inc., Smyrna, GA. 800-241-6574 or 770-436-1300
