NEWEST Products




Murata MAGICSTRAP RFID Tag devices are tiny and robust modules for RFID tags. The UHF RFID modules provide an ideal solution for product traceability when mounted on a printed circuit board. These Murata UHF RFID modules use the board traces as an antenna for the transponder. Once the UHF RFID module is mounted, information can be stored and retrieved on MAGICSTRAP devices using any EPCglobal Gen2 / ISO 18000-6C compatible UHF reader/writer. These LXMS devices are ideal for use in telecom, automotive, and computer applications, as well as other designs in which an onboard RFID transponder is needed.

Murata's HF RFID tag is approximately 1/10 the size of a conventional tag. Using multi-layer technology, Murata HF RFID Modules are fully compliant ISO15693 devices that can be adapted to a wide range of objects. These Murata HF modules feature an RF antenna embedded within the device.

Murata MAGICSTRAP RFID Modules: Medical Application
Unique Device Identification (UDI) Regulation

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has released new management regulations that would require Unique Device Identification (UDI) on medical equipment. UDI would be used to identify manufacturer, device and product information, and special characteristics.

RFID technology used in MAGICSTRAP devices represents a key technology that can be used to meet UDI requirements. UDI requirements are expected to influence many countries.

FDA's UDI Timeline

In 2016:

  • Class III devices required to be labeled with a UDI must bear a UDI as a permanent marking on the device itself if the device is a device intended to be used more than once and intended to be reprocessed before each use. § 801.45
  • The labels and packages of class II medical devices must bear a UDI. § 801.20
    • Dates on the labels of these devices must be formatted as required by § 801.18
    • Class II stand-alone software must provide its UDI as required by § 801.50(b)
  • Data for class II devices that are required to be labeled with a UDI must be submitted to the GUDID database. § 830.300
Effects of UDI
  • Improved material management and reduced healthcare costs
  • Reduced treatment errors
  • Traceability
  • Recognizing recalled equipment

RFID technology in Medical uses enhances accuracy and prevents errors
Murata MAGICSTRAP RFID Modules: Medical Application

RFID technology lets paramedical personnel accurately identify patients. Checking a patient's information against medical data prevents medication errors.

Murata MAGICSTRAP RFID Modules: Medical Application

IC tags on test vessels eliminate the need for handwritten labels and reduce errors in checking. Reading ID information allows for controlling progress during the test process.

Other Uses
  • Control of medical equipment: surgical knives, forceps, and gauze
  • Recording and checking diagnoses and dosage by medical staff
  • Preventing misidentification during operations or medical tests


Murata MAGICSTRAP RFID Modules: Manufacturing Application

Through the assembly, inspection, and shipment to the after-sale maintenance and recycling of electronic equipment, a single RFID device enables easy control of various kinds of information over the product's entire life cycle. Previously, these life cycle stages all had to be handled separately. RFID technology delivers information necessary for manufacturing process control and finely tuned after-sale customer support.

Other Uses
  • Control and visualization of work history in the production line
  • Control of component procurement and supply
  • Collecting information about people and objects' locations to optimize traffic


Murata MAGICSTRAP RFID Modules: Logistics Application

Products fitted with RFID devices can be scanned as they are packed. This method takes much less time than the traditional way of checking products one by one.

Other Uses
  • Preventing transport equipment, such as crates and roll box pallets, from being lost
  • Optimizing the number of products on store shelves by monitoring inventories in a warehouse


Murata MAGICSTRAP RFID Modules: Retail Application

The handling of premium brand products requires effective measures against counterfeiting. With RFID technology, Murata offers retailers a way to easily authenticate products by storing product ID information in IC tags attached to products.

Other Uses
  • Integrated control of reception/shipment, inventory checks, and sales records
  • At supermarkets, checking out carts without taking items out reduces waiting time
  • Identifying clothes placed on hangers allows for efficient inventory checks

Data Logging

Murata MAGICSTRAP RFID Modules: Data Logging Application

RFID can also be used to trace the vibration and temperatures to which cargo has been subjected during transportation. A log of data stored in the logger module by various sensors can be obtained via an RFID device.

Other Uses
  • Using logs of industrial equipment recorded during emergencies to analyze and investigate failures
  • Changing equipment settings immediately before shipment
