  • Patent number: 11354553
    Abstract: Radiofrequency device with adjustable LC circuit comprising an electrical and/or electronic module. The invention relates to a communication device with a radio-frequency chip, said device comprising—an insulating support layer, —an electrical and/or electronic radiofrequency circuit on said insulating layer, said circuit comprising plates of an adjustable capacitor and/or an antenna spiral with adjustable inductance, —at least one element for adjusting a tuning frequency of the radiofrequency circuit. The device is distinguished in that said plates and/or spiral are included in an electrical and/or electronic chip card module, and in that said adjusting element connects an intermediate point of the spiral so as to decrease the available inductance and/or splits or links the plates so as to adjust the capacitance.

  • Publication number: 20190311997
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing a security document, wherein a body is created that comprises two superimposed layers, a circuit which is electric and/or has an electronic chip arranged on the interface between the two layers, and a first adhesive between the two layers, which adheres to the two layers and/or the circuit. The method includes a step of depositing a second adhesive which is different from, or has a different behaviour from, the first adhesive in relation to the solvents or the temperature and partially adheres to at least one of the two layers and/or the circuit.

  • Patent number: 9252493
    Abstract: The invention relates to a radio frequency device including an antenna connected to a capacitor. Said capacitor includes first and second conductive plates that are opposite each other and separated by an insulator. At least one of said first and second plates is formed of a plurality of wire capacitor portions. Said radio frequency device is different in that the antenna and at least one capacitor plate are formed with wire portions placed on a substrate in a guided manner.

  • Patent number: 7255221
    Abstract: A device is constructed for processing or customizing cards or flattened portable objects, for example memory cards, smart card, magnetic strip card, or badge. The device is characterized in that it comprises a flexible or rigid mobile transport structure (1) bearing at least transport means (2) for receiving at least a card (9) in at least a supply station (39) and carrying the cards to one or several processing stations (3). The transport device (2) is mobile relative to the transport structure (1) and enables the card to be displaced towards the processing station (3) or to be displaced inside said station, or a combination of both, without leaving said transport structure.
