    Abstract

    We have proposed of novel assembly technology for RFID tags, based on surface treated antenna patterns and hybrid assembly technology, combining robotic feeding and droplet self-alignment. This technology has shown great potential to achieve high precision and high throughput at the same time and consequently will lead to low cost per unit, which is very important for the more widespread adoption of RFID technology. The concept was validated using artificial antenna patterns fabricated on silicon and real RFID chips and water droplet self-alignment. As a future work, the results will be extended to other substrates and liquids, including different adhesives. Moreover, a complete assembly process including the post process after self-alignment will be studied.
