Challenges with existing methods

  • Barcode, 2D code, or RFID label is not suitable for some products due to size restriction.
  • Not durable with harsh environment (e.g. temperature, pressure).
  • Not able to track products after sales.

Murata offers...

Small, robust, and embeddable RFID tag.
Lineup covering various products and applications.
Posiibility to use data through entire supply chain.

Why Murata RFID micro tag?

Small and robust

Murata possesses the knowledge and technology based on its material development history, which is highly relied upon in various industries. These knowledge and technology for ceramic enable us to provide one of the smallest and the most robust RFID tag in the world.

Line up covering various application

Murata has lineup of RFID tag covering various use case and products, including small embeddable tag. Generally it is difficult to read RFID tag on metal object. However, Murata also offers the RFID tag which is suitable for on-metal application.

Data utilization throughout entire supply chain

As micro tag is embeddable inside products, it can be used from production until after sales. Data can be utilized through out supply chain by writing and reading micro tags (e.g. manufacturing information, individual setting).

Global sales network and technical support

Murata's own antenna/application engineers with deep knowledge of wireless communication offer technical support for implementation. Also Murata has global sales network, such as the US, Europe, China, to support implementation in world wide.
