A new aluminum-based RFID inlay from Omron Corp. can help with RoHS environmental compliance according to the company.
"Some of our customers prefer aluminum instead of copper inlays due to environmental concerns about disposal of copper waste," says Bill Arnold, chief strategist of Omron RFID. "The combination of an aluminum antenna with Omron's patented chip bonding technology called Jomful dramatically reduces the use of environmentally unfriendly materials and enables us to meet RoHS standards," he says.
The credit-card sized inlay is compliant with the ISO15693 HF standard for 13.56MHz frequency and achieves comparable performance with the copper version of the same size inlay according to Omron.
